A good way to use leftover yarns and threads.
I used Peaches & Cream Cotton Yarn- http://www.peachesandcreme.com/ This pouch is 3 1/2″ X 2 3/4″
*Start with an oval.
At the beginning of each row first sc should be in same sc as joining sl st.
Pattern is worked in the round; do not turn at end of Rnd.
Rnd 1: Sc in 2nd ch from hook, sc in back loop only till you reach the last ch (10 sc*), 3 sc in last ch
wrapping around (should resemble a hook), continue across in unused loops of foundation ch, sc
across to last ch st (10 sc), 3 sc in ch, join with sl st to first sc.
Rnd 2: Ch 1, sc in next 10 sc, 2 sc in next 3 sc, sc in ea of next 10 sc, 2 sc in next 3 sc st. join.
Crochet all the way around with out adding any additional stitches for 8 rounds.
On row 9 I did two decreases on each side of pouch then I continued sc (without decrease) for two
Loosely sl st around top. End.
For the lacy flap I used Aunt Lydia’s size #3 cotton thread (I modified the chart below to fit).
After the flap is completed, do not end. Crochet 5 rows of sc on flat side. End.
Attach flap to back of pouch purse.
*For a larger purse do more oval (bottom) rows and extra rows for the rest of the purse. For a wider purse make your foundation ch longer, then you can decide on how long you want your pouch.
You can find “How to Crochet an Oval” at Bukisa.
Also, I would be remiss if I didn’t mention that I had a wonderful Mother’s Day.
I got a lemon cake with raspberry filling-
and a cute bear/balloon with three rose.
Along with chocolate covered caramel topped with a touch of sea salt that my daughter sent.
Big hugs and kisses to my family.
