Nothing says from-the-heart like handmade. You want your bridesmaids to look gorgeous on your special day, and you want to show them you care. There's no better way to do that than with a Crochet Bridesmaid Purse. This simple classic clutch purse tutorial will teach you how to create an adorable little purse for the women in your life who matter the most to you. They'll be thanking you when they look classy during the ceremony, and when they have a place to hold their cell phone and makeup!

Time to complete: In an evening

Easy

Materials

  • 861-149 Lion Brand Vanna's Glamour Yarn: Moonstone - 2 Balls
  • Lion Brand Crochet Hook - Size F-5
  • Large-Eye Blunt Needles (Set of 6)
  • Sewing needle and thread
  • One magnetic purse closure

 

Abbreviations:
beg = begin(s)(ning)
rem = remain(s)(ing)
rep = repeat(s)(ing)
sc = single crochet
sl st = slip stitch
st(s) = stitch(es)

 

Gauge: 1 ripple = 3 1/2 in. (9 cm). BE SURE TO CHECK YOUR GAUGE. When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. If it takes you less stitches and rows to make a 4 in. [10 cm] square, try using a smaller size hook; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook.
