Black Purse Post

So sis-in-law was a huge fan of Dr. Stacey’s purple purse. Her birthday was in October, so I made this black and white version for her. She requested one long, skinny pocket to be attached horizontally on the inside for pens and pencils. There were two other pockets on the other side, one for her cell, and one for her keys.

You’ll notice the strap on this one is not crocheted. Sis-in-law had a very specific length desired, and since crochet tends to stretch, I used this bad ass belt instead. I got it at a thrift store, and removed the metal belt-y ends. I used tacky glue on the raw edges so it won’t fray apart, then I used black thread to attach it to the purse. I got that button at Hobby Lobby, aka my second home.

There she is, cute as a (star) button. Look at her shirt! Did I choose the perfect button or what? I love giving homemade gifts!
