DIY Crochet and Denim Purse

I like trying new things. I thought it would be fun to make an item using two very different materials.  I decided to mix a crochet piece with denim.  To make this bag you simply need crochet thread, a crochet needle (size G), a button and a strip of denim (I used an old pair of my sons jeans). Here are the simple steps below.  Enjoy!

Instructions:

  1. Crochet the back panel – chain 60 then double crochet 12 rows.
  2. Crochet the front panel – chain 40 then double crochet 12 rows.
  3. Lay the front panel on top of the back panel and double crochet around two sides and bottom and turn right side out.
  4. Sew your denim strip closed then attach to each side of the purse sewing on by hand.
  5. Make the loop closure by crocheting a chain stitch to the center/top of the back panel.
  6. Hand sew button to the front panel
