Hello, and welcome.
I would like to inform you that I AM MOVING.
...well, sort of. I have started a new blog, Oui Crochet, that focuses just on crochet, crochet patterns, and crochet resources. I am in the process of building it up as a one stop shop for all things crochet, and I am very excited about it. I hope you will come over and check out my progress. :)
I will be moving my patterns from this site, to my new site. My idea is to leave this site active, so that you can still access other aspects of this site. I will also leave a modified "introduction" post where each pattern is on this site, as to keep all links active and make it so that you can easily locate the pattern's new home. As an added bonus, you will also find new printable/downloadable versions of my patterns.
I apologize for any inconvenience, but I assure you, this change is a positive one. I look forward to seeing you at Oui Crochet.
Happy Crocheting!

Quick Crochet Toddler Tote (Free Pattern)

A while back, I made a couple of little crochet purses for my 5 and 7 year old daughters. Well, lately, they have been playing dress up with their (19 month old) little sister. They dress her up in various clothes and accessories. A few days ago, one of the accessories was one of their little pursed. Baby sister LOVED it! She played with it half the day, putting various toys in it.
I decided that she needed a little purse of her own.

I knew I wanted to make her purse different than her sisters', but I wasn't sure on the style at first. I contemplated a squared shape with a large flap and a button to close it, but I realized that it might be too difficult for her to work with the button. I just finished a really cook beach tote (no post on it yet) a couple nights ago, and thought a tote would be a good way to go for her.

I wanted something simple and something quick. This only took me about 2 1/2 hours to make.

  2. Thank you Kirsty!
    This one is super easy to make. :-)

  3. Very cute - my daughter would never take it off!

  4. Thanks, Tiffany!
    My daughter seems to think that because there are 2 handles, she needs to slip one on each arm. She walked around half the day like that, a few days ago! LOL

  5. Love this! Back in the day I crocheted a purse for myself using two skeins at the same time, it made a pretty variegated 'fabric'.

    Thanks for sharing at What's Cluckin!
