Cute easy tote to make. Also made the top to match. Glued on some felt to make it stiffer.

Quick and easy gift for toddler cousin. I made longer strap to go over her shoulder.

I made this pattern, and turned out very similar to the one in the picture. I'm a beginner, and I had to re-do the 2nd row, but just because I read something the wrong way (I'm not a native english speaker). The only thing I changed is that I made the handles longer, and since I used a 5 mm hook, I increased one more row (84 sts) to reach the 7-inch diameter. I love the result!

I made this tote for one of my grand daughter's for her birthday along with the cardi in a deep rose. I lined the purse and added a pocket. Plus I reinforced the handles with pipe cleaners as suggested by another post. My last embellishment was a large pink button to close the top when carrying. Turned out fantastic and she LOVED it!! Thanks so very much!!

This worked up pretty fast and was pretty easy. I didn't use the cotton-ease, but I think it would have been not as flimsy if I had. Overall, I think my friend's daughter will love it. She'll be 2. I thought it needed some character so I added an applique butterfly. I think it greatly improved the fun factor. :)

The purse worked up super fast while the toddlers napped! It was just what I needed for a toddler gift. My only complaint was that the straps were a bit on the short side to place them just past a 5 inch opening. All in all, a cute play time purse and very easy to make.

I made two of these totes in different colors for christmas gifts for my cousins. Very easy to work up and I love them because of that. The only thing I did differently was that I made the handles a bit longer as they seemed a bit to small.

I did this after doing the matching cardigan. This was quick and simple and it is really cute. I did it in about an hour, and I had to redo one side a couple times (I am still new at this). I made the handles a little longer (43 ch instead of 33), and it came out really nice.

Quick and easy! I had read the reviews and was prepared to add a stiffener and lining. I used one size smaller hook, so in the end I didn't. I did however crochet the handles around pipe cleaners for form. Worked great.

I used this pattern to make red, white, and blue purses for my nieces for the 4th of July. This is a fun, easy pattern. I used New Cotton-Ease yarn—which I really love—in Cherry, Violet, and Snow. I added a crocheted star in the center using the star pattern from the Americana Afghan on this site. I also made the handles a little longer than the pattern says. I love how they turned out!
