Row 5: Now you will repeat row 1-4 until the purse is as long as you want. I made mine 14 ½ inches long.

Sides

Star at the bottom and count out 14 rows, then along the side of 10 rows sc across and make the same size.

 


Before I made my purse, I hand sewed some fabric to the purse. 


 Now you sew all the corners together.





Now we move on to are flap, just attach your yarn to the top and sc and hdc making the flap as long as you like. Then add your snap.


You can cover your snap with a small sc square and add your rings with 2 row of 5 sc and sew it on the side of the bag.


Now let’s make are handle, take your Swivel Hook and sc 5 around the hook and do 3 rows of each color and make your handle as long as you like. Then attach your handle to your purse.
