I made 2 new purses. The pink one is small. It is 10 inches across and 6 inches tall. It is lined with pink daisy fabric. It has a button closure. the strap is about 26 1/2 inches long. It is the perfect size for a young girl or for anyone who likes small purses. I am selling it for $15.00. The other purse is 13 inches across and about 8 inches tall. The diameter os the handles is about 5 3/4 inches. It is lined with fabric that matches the outer purse: pink, off-white, and lt. green stripes. It is closed with a vintage button. I am selling this one for $20.00.

I made this scarf about two years ago. A friend had gotten the pattern from a magazine but it was only the chart and no written instructions. I followed the chart and wrote out the instructions for her. The first one I gave away as a gift. This is the second one.

This is a scarf pattern I designed to use some Lion Brand Microspun yarn I had in my stash. I'm not sure how many skeins I used since it was leftover bits that I used up first. I'm pretty sure I used a size H hook.
Row 1: Sc in 2nd ch from hook and in each ch across. (24)
Row 2 – 3: Ch 1, turn, Sc in each st across. (24)
Row 4: Ch 3, turn, *Skip next st and trc in next st, trc in skipped st, repeat from * across to the last st, dc in last st.
Row 5 – 7: Repeat row 2.
Row 8: Repeat row 4.
Repeat rows 5 through 8 for desired length ending with last sc row.
Fasten off and weave in ends. Add fringe.
It took me less than a week but I finished it. All I have to do now is put in a lining. It is made with Sugar "n Cream 100% cotton. I saw it first here http://thekansashooker.blogspot.com/2010/08/my-hexagon-pursesummery-delightfulness.html
I really liked it. Had to have one!

I love purses! I saw this purse on this website http://shortylamcrochet.blogspot.com/2006/11/nordstrom-hobo-bag.html . I totally fell in love with it. I did it with worsted weight yarn since I don't like really big purses. I made this off-white one for myself along with a blue one. I made a tan one for my mom. Also an off-white one that my cousin-in-law bought from me and a black one that someone she works with bought from me. It looks good in every color I've tried. I put a lining with pockets and a magnetic snap to close it.

It's been a little over 3 years since I posted anything. I thought it was about time I started up again. Here is something I made. I have a cousin who had a baby boy a little over 2 years ago. They wanted me to make the Christening bonnet and booties but I could not find a pattern I liked for a little boy so I designed one. After that I figures I might as well design one for a girl. I did not design the booties. They are from book. I have since sold a couple of sets of them and had the patterns for the bonnets published in the Mary Maxim catalog.
