Date Night Purse

If you are anything like me, you can never get enough purses. I seem to always be in need of a tiny purse that I can just throw my cell and wallet in, and go; especially for going out to dinner or the bar. This pattern came about for that exact need. It is the perfect size for just a few things and uses less then a skein of yarn, so it is quite cheap to make. I hope you enjoy and make yourself up one in every color. You can make it two-tone or plaid like mine. The possibilities are only limited by your imagination.

Hi Robin! I was have a quick question about your book...are the designs only charted, or are there written directions as well? I love your designs, they are gorgeous! I've put aside crochet for the summer, but soon I'm going back to the convertible victorian top from "crochet me"....i love the full length version!

Hi Speakdog,

Blueprint Crochet is written as a technical guide on how to read symbol diagrams. The pattern are written from symbols and written directions to only symbols. The book is meant to be a teaching guide as well as a pattern book.

Mission Falls Goes Crochet has both symbol and written directions. It was written more like a magazine.

Hope that helps!
Robyn
