Finally, I have prepared the tutorial for this African Flower Purse, the one I wanted to make for the longest time. It is the one I planned to design and make since seeing Mia’s African Flower motifs a year ago. The moment I have it designed and started working, I already have the desire of wanting to share with you how beautiful this purse is going to be…. but I choose to save it until now (ohhhh… it is hard for me to keep this secret for that long). Now, I am so happy to splash your eyes with this beautiful baby that you would want to make and carry one 🙂
Be prepared, this is going to be another lengthy tutorial, with both crochet and sewing involved. I have to split it into 2 tutorials:
- Part 1 (this tutorial) – crochet and joining of the African Flowers motifs to make up the purse.
- Part 2 – sewing part of the lining and handles which stabilized the purse.
I modified a little on the white border of Mia’s pattern to make it into single crochet on back loops only. To cut the story short, get the pattern and tutorial after this jump.
