Basketweave Crocheted Purse

This is my Basketweave crocheted purse that I am almost finished making. I still need to put the clip closure on it and line it but the crochet part is done. I found the pattern here. Knots & Loops blogspot. The patternis free. I did ask her permission to post this on my blog but never heard from her. (Donna suggested you visit her web site for another free pattern: tam Thank you so much Donna)

The yarn I used was Lion Brand Chenille in a denim color and their Jiffy in Denim spray. The major part of the purse is just double strand chenille and the strap, sides and closing flap is one strand of each since I ran out of the chenille. It's a rather stiff bag but should soften up a little with use.

It's a beautiful purse and I can't wait to have it completely done. Her photo is far better than mine. I just can't take a good picture.

Now, I'm going to work on more of the CD snowflakes.

October16, 2009 Taking a Break

I have been under the weather, who knows if they really have the swine flu or just the flu, but I was sick or am sick so it'll be awhile till I get my ambition back to design, knit or crochet.

Also I was away for a few days before I got sick to visit grandkids and got to see the oldest grandson play football. Wish I could go tonight but this cold is keeping me home.

I will be posting again soon. I have another free pattern idea and have to work on it some more.
