An altered free pattern I found somewhere (uh... forgot where)
It's the Fleuri purse by Julie Armstrong Holetz. Here is the link for the free pattern http://crochetme.com/Feb_Mar_2005/patt_fleuri.html
Check out Ravelry.com for lots of great pictures of various members' versions of this wonderful purse and other patterns by this designer.
I found yours there and I'm making a version inspired by it. I'm gracien on Ravelry. I don't have any projects posted yet but I'll get my techie son to help me soon.
What a lovely project. Its graet way to re-start crocheting.
What a fun looking project. My 10 year old daughter is in a leg splint until August 1st and has asked to do some knitting and crocheting together. This looks like something she would love to make and a great way to pass the time.
