Star Wars Purse

Hi Everyone!

I made this purse last week, and I must say, it is my favorite. purse. ever. 
You all know that I love Star Wars, and I'm sure you can all guess that I love purses--throw in my favorite color pink, and you've got what is hands down my favorite crocheted item yet. 

And yes, it IS crocheted.  It looks like knitting, doesn't it?  ;)  I did this purse in Tunisian crochet, which was SO much fun!  I love Tunisian crochet, and the best part is:  You don't have to put in a lining! 
The stitch I used it the Tunisian knit stitch (which explains why it looks like knitting.)  I used white Red Heart Super Saver yarn and the pink is some lovely hand-dyed wool I recently posted about.  To add a little shaping to the purse I put some ribbon through the top edge and tied a bow. 
The Star Wars letters are of course my favorite part, though.  I lightly drew the outline of the letters on pink felt (From memory.  I regret not tracing the letters, they would have turned out better!), cut them out and used pink friendship-bracelet thread to blanket stitch them on. 
I think I may write up a pattern/tutorial for this one, if any of you are interested!

Let me know what you think!



  1. I would love a pattern for this! You did a great job on the purse. :-)

  2. Please post a tutorial. I'd love to see how you did this. It's really cute!

    1. Hi Miriam!

      I'll get to work on a tutorial for it! :)
      Thank you for commenting, I really appreciate it!

  3. I've never done anything related to knitting or crocheting anything except years ago in girl scouts when i almost stabbed my eyes out with knitting needles, but you just made me want to try again!!! I'm in love with this purse!

    1. Hi Antonietta!

      Aww, thanks so such! :) I'm so glad you like it!
      Please, if you need any tips, pointers or help of any kind with crocheting, feel free to send me an email! I'd be more than happy to help you in any way possible.
      Blessings! <3
