A new attempt !!! :)

Thank you for your comments on my last post !! :)

I am still on to attempting new things and this time I made this crocheted hand purse with clasp and Chenille yarn . Both the yarn and the clasp were purchased long back . I got the purse handle with sew-in holes from JoAnn's and the variegated Jumbo chenille yarn is from itsybitsy craft store in India . I used 12mm hook size for this yarn .

Crochet purse with clasp and chenille yarn
 There are many ways to attach the clasp and most conventional way is to make the purse and then attach it . I did the reverse way - cast the stitches first and then crochet .

I was fine with the stitches showing up on the clasp .  I made a rectangular crochet band with Anchor knitting cotton and 2.5 mm hook . I made the chenile yarn bottom separately and and then I sewed it onto that rectangular band . It wasn't a quick and easy thing to sew with half open clasp :(  There isn't much space in it , just enough for my phone and some currency notes .

Anshita got all A1s again in grade VIII making us feel proud :) and has moved to grade IX now .

I could not do much stitching last week , hopefully this week I will have some more done .

Have a crafty day!
Preeti :)

  11. Hi Preeti! Congratulations on Anshita's achievements :) It feels good to be proud of your own children.

    The clutch looks great! What a nice idea to cross stitch it and attach to the clasp base. Great to see your new crafty projects always. Keep it up.

  12. Cheers for Anshita's hard work and success!

    I like the way your stitches show on the clasp part of the clutch, too, but can imagine that stitching the tighter part of the project was tough! Cheers for you, coming to a pretty finish! xx

  16. What a fun purse! It looks like a fluffy cloud.
    Well done to Anshita too. My son got his report last week, all top marks and they get a grade for how they contribute to the learning environment in the class! I think I would have scored low there due to talking too much LOL
