Houndstooth Handbag

This past weekend I made this Houndstooth Handbag. It is a great pattern using Lilly's Sugar and Cream. This yarn is excellent for this purse pattern because it is so durable.  And with no stretch to the cotton, along with the dense fabric of the hounds tooth design, you don't need a liner! It is a well written pattern. I love her designs. She has a great deal under the sale section of her shop. You can get three patterns for $9.99. I took advantage of this and purchased a boy's vest pattern and a Christmas stocking pattern with my purse!  So here is the purse one day.........

 And here it is the next! (Please excuse the purple/blue line. I only have my phone camera right now, the kids messed with the settings and I can't get that line off!)


  1. There is something so cool about houndstooth patterning. Your bag looks great. How big is it? Will it be a project bag?

    1. Yes, I love the pattern and I was so happy to be able to do it in crochet! The bag is 11" long and about 8" in height. It is very roomy inside because of the pleating. I needed a new purse so, that is what this one will be. Although it will carry sock projects ;)
