80 cent purse

this is my 80 cent purse that can be whipped together in an hour or two. I bought the bright red yarn from Unique Thrift store for 80 cents and I already had the brown yarn that my grandmother gave to me. So, it was the cheap way to go!

it's super easy especially since it involves no seams (seamless purse). I didn't really have much of a pattern to go off of, although I kind of went off of this website. It's mostly half double crochet in circles.

i thought about crocheting a cute red flower or heart for the brown part, but Scott thought it would be cheezy. I think he's right.

it's a pretty big purse, or you could call it a bag.

granny square bag

I have a really cute book which is pictured below (sorry about the name :)), but it has so many cute projects to crochet. I found it at the half price bookstore. And I got this pattern for a granny square purse from it. It's definitely a detail oriented purse, but it was fun to finally finish it.

Below I also have some pictures of the process. I used the slip buckles of an old belt I never wear and I used all yarn I already had. So it was a pretty cheap purse. :)
