I designed the Rolling Waves Purse a couple of months ago and started using it right away. Well, my daughter also thinks it’s her purse. She is always putting it on her shoulder and also pulling out the wallet…and all it’s contents lol So, I decided she needed her own purse! And she loves it! Woohoo!

Crochet Purse for Little Girls Round Purse, Open Top, Long Strap, Colorful

It’s the perfect purse for little girls. It has a small strap so it doesn’t hang down too far, but the size of the purse and strap can be easily adjusted!

MATERIALS

Worsted Weight 100% Cotton Yarn
~Color A [30yds]
~Color B [30yds]
~Color C [30yds]
G/6/4.25mm Hook
Yarn Needle (to hide strings)

NOTES

~Beginning ch-1 does not count as a stitch
~I used Lily Sugar ‘n Cream in Mod Blue (Color A), Psychadelic Ombre (Color B), and I hand dyed their White in a reddish that’s comparable to their Tangerine (Color C).

INSTRUCTIONS

(Make 2)
With Color A,
1. Magic Ring, 10 dc in the ring, sl st to join in the 1st dc (10)
With Color B,
2. Ch 2, 2 dc in the spaces between each dc arnd, sl st to join in the 1st dc (20)
With Color C,
3. Ch 2, *2 dc, dc* in the sts arnd (not between), sl st to join in 1st dc (30)
With Color B,
4. Ch 2, *2 dc, dc x 2* in the spaces between each dc arnd, sl st to join in 1st dc (40)
With Color A,
5. Ch 2, *2 dc, dc x 3* in the sts arnd (not between), sl st to join in 1st dc (50)
With Color B,
6. Ch 2, *2 dc, dc x 4* in the spaces between each dc arnd, sl st to join in 1st dc; Fasten. (60)
Hold circles together with the Wrong Side(WS)/Backside facing out, so Right Sides (RS) are touching: sc around the outer edge in 43 sts (leaving 17 sts of each circles unworked). Turn the circles RS out and slip stitch arnd the opening. This will keep it open wide enough for those little uncoordinated hands.

STRAP

1. Ch 51, sc across, turn (50)
2. Ch 1, sc across; Fasten. (50) 
Sew two sts of the ends of the strap to the sides of the purse at the edge of the opening.
And now you have a purse! I keep picturing the opening as a mouth and have very much considered adding eyes and maybe some ears to the top…if anyone does it, please share with me!!! 
I changed the colors around for the second circle. On this side the color combo would be C, B, A, B, C, B. 

If you make them, please link to this post when sharing your creations! I would appreciate it so much!
