Make a Crocheted Granny Square Purse

I like purses. I have several, but nearly all are purses I made. I have been working on a granny square blanket, so since I had some granny squares on hand, I thought I'd take them and make a new purse . . . 

I'm really happy with the finished purse . . . it has enough room for my things and it has enough color to make it fun. It is a really easy purse to make . . . just make some granny squares with leftover yarn - I used six granny squares for this purse - then crochet a liner. I attached the liner to the top of the granny squares and then crocheted some additional rows to make the top part of the purse, added a handle and voila! The purse was finished!

This is a simple enough pattern you could easily use it to help a granddaughter learn to crochet . . . and make a purse for herself, her mom, a friend . . . 

So, what do you think? For whom might you make a purse like this?


  1. I could never make up my own patterns! Think I will stick with quilts. It's a great idea for granddaughters to do with grandma. Thanks.
