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!
