My newest pattern, the Floral Flair Handbag, incorporates a lot of different crochet techniques and I created several videos to help you learn these awesome tricks!

Confession time: I had been using the same handbag since November of 2017. Not even kidding! I do own other handbags, but due to a combination of not loving any of them and pure laziness, I haven’t used any in literal years! My wonderful spouse has been recommending for quite some time that I just design a new purse, but I was really intimidated by the idea and kept dismissing it.

This year though, I have decided to step outside of my comfort zone as a designer and have finally made me a new handbag! I love it, and I moved all of my crap into it as soon as the last end was woven in. This bag has already snagged a bunch of compliments when we run errands together, and I know your Floral Flair handbag is going to do the same!

I used Shine Worsted from Knit Picks (courtesy of We Crochet) for my handbag, plus I repurposed a pillow case for my liner 😉

You can use my affiliate link to order some Shine Worsted for yourself!
