I love turquoise!

I wanted to show off a purse that someone ordered from me recently – it’s crocheted in an open shell pattern holding one strand of worsted brown yarn with one strand of Tanis’ Blue Label Mallard. The handle is leather from Americo Original on Queen West. I added vintage buttons and crocheted flowers to finish off the look.

**Edit – I’ve been remiss! I initially found the pattern here: Sorry for not including that earlier ;)

The client also wanted earrings to go with it, something classy yet complimentary to the purse. After much sleuthing around I found a chain of polished agate, the colour is gorgeous and I think it’s a perfect match =o)

    I LOVE that purse!!! I have really been loving turquoise-y colors lately, and that is the cutest crocheted purse I think I’ve ever seen. Did you write your pattern for it, and would you be able to share it? The ribbon, flowers, strap are all perfect :)

    Hi! I found the initial pattern here:

    I should have mentioned that in the post – sorry for missing that! I’ve also amended the original post ;)
    Best
