Fruity purse

Another summer birthday is on its way so I needed a very quick project that I could whip up in a few hours, luckily I had something started already.

You may remember that back in January I was trying my hand at designing my own crochet items for sale. One of the items that I thought might sell well were little crochet purses - and they were very quick and easy to crochet up. However, when it came to finishing them off and trying to hand sew in a zip things got a little harder.

This little purse is the same one photographed back in January, but this time with the zip finally put in and a leaf added at the top in the hopes that it looks something like an apple. I've also not bothered trying to line this purse as the crochet is very dense and sturdy so should be fine without.

I may make more of these, I just wish I had a bit of orange wool so that I could do some oranges as well as apples - hey, maybe I could try a few different fruits too...
