A crocheted purse made with recycled sari silk yarn. I just turned this into the Home & Hobbies division for the San Diego County Fair, along with a necklace and an elaborate bead "tassel".
I didn't use a pattern as such for the purse-- just made it "big enough" to cover a pre-made canvas bag, left holes to use as button holes and then mad a simple flap and strap.
Instructions are currently posted on my Yahoo group. I'll try to "cut and paste" them to this blog....
