|Close Up of Heart on Mini Purse (see below for link to tutorial)|
So I became addicted to the world of crocheting. (I tried the whole knitting thing and for the life of me I can't do it- the lil' 11yr old did not know how to knit either- that's something I need to find a class for) I bought books, tons of yarn, tons of hooks, canvased the web, and even taught my mom and my lil' sis. There were two projects I wanted to conquer in the work of crochet. Slippers! and little coin purses! I've attempted many slippers, usually only able to make one funny looking one- so thats a work in progress. But I am better at making little coin purses/wallets/bags...I'm not quite sure what the proper name for these lil' gems are.
Here is the second finished one I made! (Here is the First) This one is tiny. Finished it is about 3 inches or so tall. I wanted something small that would fit a few dollars, an ID and possibly a metro card. (and maybe some lip gloss or a lipstick)
The idea and general tutorial for this bag came from the AMAZING Klutz book Crochet (I found mine at my local Michaels store....Barnes and noble carries it also but I couldn't find it in the 4 different Barnes and Nobles I went to- its in their children's section if you go) This is the jewelry roll project, but I made some modifications to mine. (It's like the Envelope Clutch project combined with the Jewelry Roll)
The tutorial for the crocheted heart is from Little Birdie Secrets SUPER easy to follow tutorial, there is even a video! I added a silver outline to my heart, just to make it match my design. (Descriptions from this point on are below the picture)
This is the close up of the yarn I used. Its a beautiful sparkly silver. It's Lion Brands, Vanna's Choice Glamour in Platinum. You can order it online through the link, but I found it at my local Michaels!
