Easy Crochet Change Purse and Cute Little Appliques

Easy crochet change purse and cute little appliques

It's been a while since my last post. I had to deal with some life issues and that includes me suffering from numbness of my right hands and I just recently found out that it is called as Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. As I have read from Dr. Willy Ong's tips, it is believed to be caused by too much work using the hands and it only means that I am not the only crocheter suffering from this syndrome. (For some preventive measures regarding Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, you may read Dr. Ong's tips here.)

Anyways, here is my latest project, a quick and easy way to crochet a coin purse with cute appliques suitable for beginner. I used tiny cord but any type of yarn will do and a 4mm hook. 

Procedure:

Round 1: Chain 16. 2 sc in second chain from hook, sc 14, 3 sc in the last ch. 
Working on the other side, sc into the remaining sts until end. Sl st to join.

Round 2: Ch 1. 2 sc in same st, 2 sc in next. Sc in next 14 sts, 2 sc in next 3 sts, sc in next 14 sts, 2 sc in last st. Sl st to join.

Round 3: Ch 1, sc in same st, sc across. From here, start working the round continuously. You may use a stitch marker to mark the beginning of each round.

Round 4-15: Sc across until round 15.
Fasten off. 

Attach the zipper by sewing it on the sides of the opening.

For the appliques:

Butterfly applique - from Little Birdie Secrets
Heart applique - from Planet June
Duck applique - from Jenny and Teddy 
Angel Fish applique - from Beginner's Crochet Pattern
Apple Applique - Annemarie's Haakblog
Flower Applique - same pattern I used on my Metallic Evening Purse
