5 Little Monsters: Rainbow Crossover Crocheted Purse

Rainbow Crossover Crocheted Purse


A couple weeks ago I ran into Hobby Lobby to pick up some things we needed for my son's Pinewood Derby car. I rarely go to Hobby Lobby because it isn't super close to my house so I felt like I couldn't leave without checking out the yarn aisle.


When I saw a ball of rainbow colored cotton yarn I knew my 7 year old would love it. I had been wanting to make her a little purse and knew this would be perfect. She loves everything rainbows and unicorns.


I wanted to make it a small purse that she could wear crossover style so it would stay on her without falling off. Since I was making it for a little girl I wanted it to be small.  It just needed to be large enough to hold a phone and maybe a few other small things.


How to Make a Rainbow Crossover Crochet Purse


You will need:

  • 1 skein worsted weight cotton yarn (I used I Love This Cotton in Brights Print)
  • I crochet hook
  • large button
  • yarn needle
  • stitch marker
  • scissors
  • needle and thread

Round 23: find the center stitch on the side that will be the back of your purse, mark this stitch with a stitch marker or yarn scrap, ch 1, sc to the center back stitch that you marked, ch 15, sl st to first ch, sc in the next stitch and each stitch around, sl st to first sc to join (38 sc, ch 15 loop)

Lay the purse flat and find the 2 stitches on each side where you will attach the handle, starting on one side work 2 sc, ch 1, turn, work 1 sc in each stitch, and repeat that working 2 sc in each row until the strap is the length you want, I did about 94 rows of sc to make my strap, *you will want to make it a little shorter than you think you need it because it will stretch out with use*, cut your yarn and stitch the strap to the two marked stitches on the other side, weave in ends

Stitch the button to the front of your purse
