Crochet Inspiration

So I printed the pattern from the website and got to work. But, of course I had to improvise a little, its my nature. I rarely follow instructions exactly as written. I usually read through then figure out how I’m going to implement the steps needed.

In this case, I used Lion Suede yarn which is thick, fuzzy and super soft instead of the yarn choice of the pattern. Also, I really don’t like the plastic handle thing so I decided to make long straps. And I wanted closure, so I crocheted a button closing.

Once I crocheted the two circles, I began to visualize making circular purses with drawings on one side. That’s how my embroidered crochet purse creating got started .

I am pretty pleased with the way it turned out. I gifted the purse to a co-worker and she seemed to like it as well. I was thinking that it would be cool to make the flower as a pillow, eliminating the handle part, just crocheting two circles and crocheting the flower petals on one side and making it to fit a pillow insert. Wouldn’t it be cool to have a couch filled with flowers?
