Small Crochet Purse

Small Crochet Purse – This small purse is ideal for little one’s to put their small coins or their tiny knick knacks in, it is made in a half double crochet stitch with a pretty lacy flap and button to close.

To make for an adult you could add a material lining for extra strength and add more chains to the strap.
