With Hot Pink, let’s make the Square: Find FREE Square Pattern HERE
Assembly: Sew orange purse base onto square, then sew blue flap on top. For strap, pinch ends of one side together and sew, then pinch ends of other side together and sew, then sew back edge to square taking care to only go through the top layer of stitches for all so the stitching doesn’t show on the back of the square. Weave in all ends.
YOU’VE GOT YOUR CROCHET PURSE!
