To make the handle
Ch 3
wk 1sc in 2sts, ch 1 and turn
Repeat this for about 30 rows or so. You want it to have a little space above whatever you decide to hang. When sewing the handle on...you want to make sure that they hang right...pin each side and fill it with whatever you'll be hanging...adjust and sew in place.

To make the bow
Ch 9
Row 1. wk 1sc in 8 sts, ch 1 and turn.

Row 2. wk 1dec, 1sc in 4 sts, 1dec, ch1 and turn.

To make the center of the bow.
Ch 3
Wk 1sc in the next 2 sts
Do this until it fits around the center of the bow, sew in place. Pinch it together so it
fits snug. Sew it on the handle. I made two bows for yellow sconce because the yarn was very light and it kept curling. I just sewed the two together and made my center a little longer to fit around both bows.

This pattern is for personal use.

2 in 2sts, Do not FO.


This is the bottom of the bag, you want the oval to lay flat. But don’t worry
if it curls a little. Now to make the sides of the bag.
Row 9. 1sc in each st around.
Rows 10-26. 1sc in each st around in the last row FO and weave in the end with a tapestry needle.

Front Flap with spring green




The flap is about 31/2 inches wide so mark off 11sts just make sure that the flap is the center. I measured mine but it didn’t look even so I just eyeballed it. Attach yarn to back side of purse in the st where marker is and ch1, put first sc in that st and in next 10sts, ch1 and turn.
Rows 2-17. 1sc in each st, ch 1 and turn.
Row 18. dec2sc sts, 1sc in the next 7sts, dec the last 2sts, ch1 turn.
Row 19. dec2sc, 1sc in 5sts, dec2sc and FO.
Attach Spring Green yarn to the outside of bag like in the picture, wk 1sc all the way around flap and the entire purse. Join to the first sc with a sl st.
do not FO.
To make the leaves around the bag
Ch 6
1sl st in the first ch st, 1sc in the next, 1hdc, 1dc, 1tr, sk 3sts and wk
1sl st in the fourth st, 1sc in the next 2sts.
Repeat all the way around, join with a sl st, if you get to the end and you have an extra st just sc & FO. With matching thread tack down the leaves if you want to.
The Shoulder Strap with spring green
Ch6
Row 1. 1sc in the 5sts, ch1 and turn.
Repeat row 1 until your bag measures the desired length, mine measured about 23 inches long.
Now to sew the straps to the sides of the purse. I put tissue paper inside the bag, it helped hold the bag up. Pin the sides (like in the picture) make sure both sides are even. Once pinned hold up the bag to see how it hangs.
Sew with matching thread on both sides.
Sew the beads in place (I used 5mm & 7mm beads) with red thread.
For closure, I used snaps on mine but the snaps can be hard for
a smaller hand to use. So you can use Velcro just sew the Velcro on with a matching thread.
To make the Strawberry on the flap
To make the bottom of Purse with red yarn & G Hook
Ch3
Row 1. 1sc in each st, ch1 and turn
Row 2. 2sc in each st, ch1 and turn

ch4, 1sc, 1hdc, 1dc, sk next 2sts, sl st in the last st & FO.
With a tapestry needle and yellow yarn make the spots on the strawberry
by going in and out a few times. FO and sew to the front of the flap.
This completes the instructions for the Strawberry purse.
I have made a few other purses with interchangeable snap-on’s and because they are interchangeable I reinforced the snaps with a small disc to help with the taking on and off.
To make the disc
Ch2
Row 1.6sc in the second ch from the hook
Row 2. Wk 2sc in each st around, if the piece is bigger and calls for a bigger disc then do rows 3, 4.
