Baseball Purse
Created By: Deborah Greytak

Using Lion white cotton, I decided to make a baseball purse. (During a bad game I was watching).

I first crochet 2 round circles adding extra stitches in each row, with about 130 total dc stitches on the final row.

As I stitched the 2 together, I left a 4 inch space open at the top with a 6 chain loop in the center.

Then as the game got worse, I embellished the handle into a baseball bat.

I added gold yarn to the white and added 3 stitches to every other row and stuffed it with cotton as I went along.

Closing the top in the center, I then crochet a cord starting with 3 stitches. I then added 2 more stitches to thicken the end of the cord.

Finishing it off,

1: I sewed red crochet cotton on each side to make the stitched pattern.

2: I sewed on a button to close the purse.

It's a hit wherever I go, esp. at the games.

I'm now making a golf ball purse with a Club as the handle for the upcoming Firestone Golf Tournament.
