Video Crochet Coin Purse Trinket Bag Rosary Pouch


Here is the little messenger bag that I had designed in 2011 for my original Coraline pattern. Since I am currently revising Coraline's pattern and the video tutorial I thought this would make
a great pattern to revise and have it be a pattern all on it's own. The only thing I really changed from the original pattern is now it is all one piece aside from the handle. And  also that it can be used as a coin purse, trinket bag or Rosary pouch. Use as party favors or hang on the Christmas tree with a little gift inside. The possibilities are endless and so is the fun! This is a great project for using up left over yarn and can be completed in under 30 minutes.

Handle:
1) ch50 f/o and leave a long enough tail to sew the handle in on both sides.

place chain along the inside edge of bag as pictured and whip stitch the 2 edges of the bag together and at the same time you will be sewing the handle in place. Start at the bottom edge of the bag and work your way up towards the top of the bag. You can weave the yarn tail across the front of the purse then whip stitch the other side just as you did for the first part. Knot off when done and weave the yarn tail in.


Closure:
you can leave the purse as is or sew in a snap closure, or add a loop to the front flap of the purse and a button on the front of the purse. You could also use Velcro...

  2. First of all, thank you for a wonderful work. I love your patterns.

    I wonder if it is possible for me to translate some of your patterns into Spanish and share with my blog readers? There are many spanish crocheters that can not read English descriptions. Obviously, I will link to you and your pattern and give you credit for the work!

    You can see my blog in losenredosdelyanne.blogspot.com.es

    Please let me know if it is okay or not.
    Thanks in advance!
