Carry roses wherever you go with these fun, fancy crocheted handbags. Choose from three classic shapes and stitch with Extra Bulky Yarn. Then add simple-to-make trims and roses with size 3 crochet cotton thread. Purses are 6"-8" high and 10"-13" wide; envelope styles have boxed bottoms to sit flat.
You will need D-3 (3.25mm) and K-10.5 (6.5mm) Crochet Hooks, a Tapestry Needle, and a sheet of plastic canvas and scissors to cut (optional).
