Last year I bumped into a crochet blog by a Guy! Yep, and he calls himself ‘The Crochet Dude’. His crocheted creations were different and fresh. I was quite taken with them, and the idea of a guy who not only could crochet but come up with his own creations was enchanting! He had a few free patterns, and I was happy to try his pattern for ‘Travel Jewelry Purse‘. I liked it so well, that I made several and gave them as belated Christmas gifts. I may have taken a couple of photos and posted, but I gave away more of the cute little purses than I had taken photos of as a record. So I made some more and this time took photos.
Love the finished purse with it’s ruffled top. I played around with making several layers of ruffles because I so liked the look of the first one I finished.
And for a dual-colored purse, it was fun to put colors together and see the results. This is one of several I worked up using different color for outside and inside. Above is the black outside of the purse closed up. Below is the purse opened to reveal a contrasting color of orange inside pockets.
