Crochet Change Purses.

It’s crochet season! This is one of my favorite pass time activities, especially on a rainy day or while I’m settling in for the day relaxed in my recliner watching TV.

The other day as I was cleaning out my yarn basket and noticed I had a yarn stash of small pieces that were not enough to make anything bigger than my hand. Instead of throwing them away, I decided to crochet some tiny change purses. I also made use of my little purse frames I had collected for another project that never worked out. 

These are perfect to keep a little spare change in. I remember when I was teenager, it was a rule to always keep a quarter in your pocket in case you need to make an emergency call. Now days you need a cell phone a lot more than a quarter to get any help. 

I love how these little purses turned out. They can also be used as little pill boxes or even slid under a child’s pillow for the tooth fairy visit. 

If you crochet, they are easy to make. Sewing them on the frame is the hardest part. I’m not good at writing crochet patterns, but basically it’s a single stitch in the rounds. Increase your rounds until you have the circumference of the open purse frame. Then you continue in the round without increasing until you have the depth you want. Then sew it on the frame using a strong thread. 

That's it. It will take its shape once the sewing in complete.  

If you do not crochet and would like one of these tiny purses, they can be found in my Etsy Shop with Free shipping.
