Poppy Meadow Crochet Bag

This is a fun hippy/boho purse with an inner pocket. Self lined with an inner dc/tr circle.

I used Dk cotton for this beauty available here.

Four separate pieces come together to make this a sturdy little purse. The inner circle adds a feature of its own, with colour peeping through the outer mandala. The flowers are made as you go and not sewn on later.

Instructions are also included in the pattern to make your own polymer clay beads and button. This is quite easy. I don’t use any fancy tools to make these as I am always one to improvise and use what you have on hand. Items such as a crochet hook and a lipstick lid are used to get the holes and shapes.

This purse works up quickly and I know several of my testers had family members claiming their finished purses the minute they were finished. Definately a popular item for teenagers.

My testers made this purse in a variety of yarns and colours, each one unique to them. The results were stunning!

A few of my testers bags. 1. By Christy Schuler. In navy and cream and looking fabulous with a two-tone fringe. 2. By Jane Wynne. I love this in the cream with just a hint of blue. 3. By Sharon C. Coys Elderton. I joked with Sharon as anyone who knows me, knows I really don’t like green, but Sharon won me over with her beautifully neat stitches. She also made her own polymer clay beads and button (instructions for this are in the pattern ).

This is an advanced beginner to intermediate level project. Instructions include how to make your own polymer clay button and beads if you choose to.
