Craftsy Premium: Elephant Purse

Join Brenda K.B. Anderson for a Craftsy Premium member LIVE event. This small colorwork piece features a geometric design at the top and elephants that encircle the bottom of the bag. The colorwork is done with center single crochet, in a tapestry crochet style, which adds structure to the fabric so it does not need to be lined with fabric. A kiss lock purse frame adds a special professional finish to this beautiful crocheted project.

    I checked on Amazon but all the frames I found were 3.3 inches, can you give me the name of what you used?

    Do you have an alternate source for the purse frames for those of us who do not buy from Amazon?

      I often buy purse frames from Etsy- there is a huge selection on that website, but just note that sometimes the shipping time is longer.

    Dear Brenda, I am mainly a knitter, I can do some crochet but I’m definitely not an expert. You have sold me on giving this a try. Your instructions are awesome and your design adorable. Thanks so much! I’ll look up your book for sure. Hugs, viv

      The tiny purse is so adorable! I can crochet, but I am not a big “crochet” person.
