Bridesmaid Purse

Lion Brand« Vanna's Glamour«

GAUGE:

1 ripple = 3 1/2 in. (9 cm).

When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Bridesmaid Purse Reviewed by Kathleen Ballantine on 2013-06-03 *****
I lined it, and inside the lining I placed pieces of plastic canvas. I tacked these in place and it keeps its shape beautifully. I also added a crocheted shoulder strap that can be placed inside if you wish to use it as a clutch. Plastic canvas can be purchased inexpensively at any craft store.
