Crocheted with just 2 or 3 balls of beautiful Noro Chirimen or Noro Silk Garden yarn. The yarn does the beautiful color work and instantly creates wonderful texture for you. Purchased straw or bamboo purse handles give it instant tropical appeal, and the flower is fun to crochet using accent colors from your stash, or with leftover yarn from the bag itself.
