Purple Purse Post
As you know, because I know you’re an avid reader, hanging on my every word, Dr. Stacey is a dear friend of mine in medical school. We were recently hanging out and I mentioned I had some electric purple yarn I wanted to get rid of somehow. Dr.Stacey liked it, and needed a bag for medical school, so tada! an idea was born.
Dr. Stacey requested two pockets, one for her phone and one for keys, and a bag big enough to hold a spiral notebook. I also had lots of odds and ends of purple yarn laying around, which I mixed with the electric purple to tone it down some. I crocheted the main part of the bag first in one long rectangle, which I would fold in half later to make the bag.
I also made the pockets as individual rectangles, and then sewed them onto the bag. This is them loose, but about where I attached them.
And like Martha Stewart, Viola!
The darker purple is not quite as blue in real life as it looks in the photo. There’s a little flap and a button on the top to close the bag. With the strap you have to be careful, because they will stretch. My sis-in-law, Lis, has requested one now, in black, white, and grey, and I’m going to use a belt from Goodwill as the strap on hers, so that the length can be controlled better. I still have more electric purple yarn, but it’s about half gone. I wonder what other wonderfulness I will create?
