Crochet Pattern: Crossbody Pocket PurseBy Emilee Gettle – 21 Comments
|This super simple project is the perfect purse to keep in your large bag. If you need a few dollars to run in the store, throw on this little crossbody beauty and you’ll have what you need without a backache from carrying a large purse for those quick errands. They also work great for simple gifts and can be stashed away for the holidays. My daughter especially enjoys keeping a few of these little purses handy for her dolls and play money. Whenever we go to town, she has to bring her own pocket purse and be just like mommy!|
