Item details

PLEASE NOTE: THIS IS A PATTERN, NOT THE ACTUAL ITEM! There are no refunds for .pdf files.

This is a 13 page pdf file (illustrated) of pattern instructions to make this cute drawstring purse. A thick cotton clothesline is crocheted with cotton crochet thread (size 5) to form a sturdy flat bottom that can double as a basket by rolling down the sides. This makes it a pretty and practical gift basket. Also, handy for packing loose items on a long trip. Great for the beach, too.

There is also a tutorial for the crab stitch edging.
