This book provides 20 beautiful, stylish designs for crocheted purses - some of them are small bags for storing loose change, make-up etc. in your handbag; others are big enough to use by themselves. There are a variety of sizes and styles, with different types of fastening, all worked in various colours, yarns and crochet stitches with added embellishments such as buttons and beads. Some of the purses have attractive fabric linings and others include pretty embroidered motifs. All of the materials used will be widely available both here and in the US.
Crochet is amazingly popular, arguably overtaking knitting as one of the current hot craft trends. Anna works for Rowan Yarns as a designer and is already well-known in crocheting circles. Her designs are stylish, desirable and a modern take on vintage purses, using a variety of yarns and different crochet stitches.
