FREE Crochet Pattern by A Crafty Homemaker.
Today we have Lubna from A Crafty Homemaker with us. And she’s got a lovely purse pattern that you can use for change and other small items such as keys. It’s the perfect size for trips when you don’t have room for a big purse. And it’s stylish too! I especially love the pretty edging around the flap.
Best of all, Lubna was kind enough to give us step-by-step pictures to make this a breeze for anyone to whip up.
This little wallet is perfect to store your cash and change when you head outdoors. Stuff it in your handbag or your jeans pocket – it fits everywhere. And the best part – it takes less than an hour to make it ( unless you have a toddler tugging at you every five minutes) ?
