Crochet and denim purse

Holiday purse

Posted by

Sometimes an idea I have swirling around in my head works out, sometimes it doesn’t.
This is one of those more satisfying occasions.

Well, I think so anyway.

The denim is from a skirt I’d had stashed for fabric for some time.

The lining is a piece I had left over from my swirly crochet cushion.Crochet and denim purse

The use of the crochet as a closure meant there was no need to insert a zip and so was a really quick make.Crochet and denim purse

I included some wadding between the denim and the lining to give the purse some substance.Crochet and denim purse

The button came from my huge button stash.Crochet and denim purse

I intend to use this on a holiday planned for this Easter. An evening purse just large enough to carry my phone, a lipstick and some money.

Of course last years make will be coming along too.

I hope those of you in the UK enjoyed some lovely warm sun today.

Doesn’t it restore your faith in the British climate!

Love, Lucie xx


  1. Great idea. Especially love the lining – mind you, I have a bit of a thing about linings lol. Lovely addition to last year’s crochet bag. Enjoy your holiday! 🙂


  2. I made something similar years ago (but I just added a lacy doily to an existing bag so nothing like a lovely as yours) I need to find it and start using it again – thanks for the inspiration! It’s been beautiful this weekend hasn’t it – I hope you were able to get out and enjoy it!


  3. Beautiful and a total surprise! Lovely idea indeed 🙂
    And yesterday was the first time I ventured out without a coat at least over my arm in case. It felt like it was bordering on summer!!


  4. Oooooh Lucie, I love it! I especially love the lining, nothing nicer than opening a bag/purse and seeing the pretty fabric inside!


      1. Thank you 🙂
        I’ve been looking and can’t find any that suit the pattern I’m doing and this one looked lovely. I don’t want them to be too much of a solid circle so you last round is ideal (I’m just being picky!) x
