Mermaid Tears Purse

Project Description

What was your source for this crocheting project? Online Photo or Website Name of website or photo Mermaid Tears Purse Link to website or photo www.bernat.com/pattern.php?PID=6267 What are you most proud of? The fact that it is my first ever purse.... I did everything including the lining myself... The handles get the most compliments though.... What advice would you give someone starting this project? The handles I made are not the handles included with the pattern. I chose to make the flower removable in case it was too much. The instructions are well written, and there is also a video on YouTube that takes you through the pattern stitch by stitch if you prefer... don't be scared of the stitch...

What you will need

  • Red Heart Banana Berry Yarn Primula 100% Cotton (handles) 5.00 & 4.50 MM Crochet hooks Yarn Needle Cotton Fabric for the lining Barrett to attach the flower

This is so beautiful! Brilliant choice of colors. I agree, that stitch isn't bad once you get your head wrapped around the concept. Thanks for sharing!
Xta-Kat answered:
The fact that there is a video to go along with the pattern is fantastic as well! Right from the slip knot all the way through. Thank you so much for the compliment! It's been such a hit!
