Hi! Today I’m going to show you how to make an easy Crochet Flower

Purse. To create this purse all you need to know is how to chain, single crochet, double crochet, slip stitch, decrease stitch, and create a Magic Circle.

This purse can be adjusted to any size needed. A small purse is 7x5 flowers, which is the size of a handbag big enough to fit your essentials. A medium size bag is 8x6 flowers, which is the size of a normal purse, has enough room to fit a 7 inch tablet and other things. A large purse is 9x7 flowers, large enough to fit everything above plus more. I did mine 8x6. The purse can be enlarge further by adding a row and a column.

Step 1: Things Needed

Things needed:

Hook: Size E or 3.50 mm

3 Colors of Yarn (I chose Red Heart Bonbon Print, Red Heart Soft Navy, and Red Heart Black)

Lining for Bag (I used an old T-Shirt)

Scissors

Stitch markers (If you don’t have any, use any scrap of yarn as your marker)

Button (Optional)

Yarn Needle (Optional)

Sewing Machine

Abbreviations:

ch- chain

sc- single crochet

dc- double crochet

st- slip stitch

* *- repeat in between the asterisks

c1- first color

c2- second color

c3- third color

Step 2: How to Do a Magic Circle

Step 1:Wrap the yarn around your finger three times leaving the tail to the right.

Step 2: Take the hook and grab the first loop and bring to the right leaving a loop on the hook.

Step 3: Grab the working yarn leaving another loop on the hook.

Step 4: Pull the loop through. This would be the magic circle. The tail would be used to tighten the circle.

Step 3: Creating the First Flower

Row 1 (c1): Create a Magic Circle. Ch 1 and dc 16 into the Circle. St to the ch. Tighten the circle.

Row 2 (c2): To create the petals st into any dc and ch 10. St to next dc and ch10. Repeat around until you get 16 petals.

Step 4: Creating the First Row of Flowers

Row 1 (c1): Create a Magic Circle. Ch 1 and dc 16 into the Circle. St to the ch. Tighten the circle.

Row 2 (c2): To create the petals st into any dc and ch 10. St to next double crochet and ch10. Repeat around until you get to the 15th petal, but DON’T connect to the dc. Cut enough yarn to finish up (I cut mine around 13 inches, but you can cut more, any less and you won’t have enough to finish up). Take the 15th petal and interlace into one of the petals of the first flower then st into the center flower. Do the same with the 16th petal. Repeat the steps above for the third flower, but leave 6 petals above and below the flower, unconnected.

Step 5: Connecting Corner Flowers

Row 1 (c1): Create a Magic Circle. Ch 1 and dc 16 into the Circle. St to the ch. Tighten the circle.

Row 2 (c2): To create the petals st into any dc and ch 10. St to next double crochet and ch10. Repeat around until you get to the 11th petal, but DON’T connect to the dc. Cut enough yarn to finish up (I cut mine around 53 inches. Again, you can cut more, any less and you won’t have enough to finish up). Take the 11th petal and interlace into the 4th petal of the flower on the top and st to the center flower. Repeat with the next petal, but connect to the 3rd petal of the top flower. Make the 13th and 14th petal, but don’t interlace into any other petals. Make the 15th petal and connect to the 3rd petal of the side flower and the same with the 16th flower to the 4th petal of the side flower.

Step 6: Filling the Gaps of the Flowers (c3)

Create a Magic Circle. Ch 6 and cut enough to finish up (I cut mine around 48 inches). Interlace to the first petal and st into the magic circle. Repeat until you get the rest of the 7 petals. Tighten circle.

Step 7: Creating the Handles

First Part:

This portion will begin with the longest side and could be made using any color you choose.

Row 1: St to the 5th petal of the corner petal of the right side counting from the left (Five petals should be left on the side). Sc to the next petal on the left. *Decrease stitch by gathering the next three petals. You should have 4 loops on the hook. Pull the working yarn loop through the 4 loops.* Repeat until you get to the last flower. The last flower will be one decrease stitch for the first 3 petals and a decrease stitch for the next 2 petals. Ch 1 and turn your work.

Row 2-6: Sc into all sc stitches made by the first row. Repeat for row 3-6. Make sure you have the same amount of stitches you got in the first row in the second through sixth row (In my case, I had 16 stitches and kept 16 stitches in all my rows). Once you finish to the 6th row, ch 1 and sc down the 6 sc rows until you get to the shortest side of the bag (The end amount of sc before getting to the side row should be 6 sc stitches). Decrease stitch the first 2 petals, then *decrease stitch of the next 3 petals.* Repeat until you get to the last flower. The last flower will be one decrease stitch for the first 3 petals and a decrease stitch for the next 2 petals. Use a marker to mark the last stitch.

This next part you’ll repeat the instructions for Row 1-6.

Second Part:

Once you’re at the top of the 6 sc rows on one side. *Ch 70 and st to other side of the sc rows (You can make the handle as short and long as you want. 70 is large enough to have it hanging on your shoulder and be able to get things out). Sc down the sc rows and towards the next sc rows* and repeat. Ch 1 and Sc around the whole bag to create a foundation row (Make sure the bag is facing you while doing the foundation row, don’t work from the inside of the bag). Once the foundation row is done, sc around the bag until you are satisfy with the thickness, then the bag would be finished. Next would be the lining.

Step 8: Sewing the Lining

I made my lining using an old T-shirt. I cut the T-shirt just under the design because the length would be just right for my purse. I sewed the cut side and sewed an angle on each corner, so it won’t be too bulky inside the purse. I opened the purse inside out and took placed it inside the lining, making sure that the good side is showing out. I sewed the top to the first row of the stitches of the bag, then opened the bag inside out. If any of the sewing can be seen, I just lightly rubbed the yarn until the sewing can’t be seen, just make sure not to rub too hard or the yarn would fluff up too much.

Step 9: Adding a Button (optional)

Pick any button you like for the purse and fasten it to the front of the purse in the middle. Then take the color yarn used for the handle and st onto the right stitch from the middle. Ch 8 and st to the left stitch from the middle. Ch1 and turn. Sc down the ch and st.

Step 10: Finished Product

That’s it! Above are approximate measurements so you can get an idea of how big the bag is.

I hoped you enjoy it!
