It started with this flower.
From this book:
And it became the focal point of this handbag.
A handbag for Ruth.
And blue is her favorite color....
And zippers don't cut it for a massive stroke victim --- but pockets for tissues and sunglasses (yes, she is still a diva needing her shades...) I sewed this handbag for her. Now when we go out shopping (which we do frequently) she can do it in style.

This flower was so easy & quick to crochet that I started to think about all of the fabric in my stash. And yarn.
And since this handbag was so easy to sew ( I just drew out a purse template on cruddy paper and sewed it from there)...and the flower so fun & fast --
It's the makings for some (a lot!) cute handbags with 'crochet-cute' flowers as added embellishment.
