Seems nice. But i don't know wat means 1 tr in next sc (pushing tr to RS of work). I am from the Netherlands and i don't know the translation.

I originally made two, one each for a teen and tween niece. My sister liked them so much, I made one for her, too, and THEN my mom wanted one - so all the females on my Christmas list are getting one. I stuffed the ones for the girls with hair thingees - ponytail holders, headbands, etc, that I made using patterns from this website! Thank you!

Cynthia Marie: I have the Lily Book this pattern comes from and it it called Victoria Charm and is book # 570817 and the blue and white item in the background is a boutique tissue box cover and it is done in a checkerboard type pattern with two colours. There is also a standard size cover done the same way. Margaret-Ann

I'm making this too. It's so pretty! I'm almost finished, but working with cotton yarn really aggravates the arthritis in my hands because there is not much "give" in cotton yarn to pull the yarn through. My right hand is absolutely killing me!!! Has anyone tried any other type of yarn and if so, how did it turn out? ..... I'm also wondering what the blue & white crocheted thing is in the background of the pic? It appears to be a checkerboard pattern with plain colors rather than variegated yarn.

This purse looks so elegant I added a lining. I'm going to try the velcro as some of you have suggested and also a cluster of roses on the front. Thanks guys

I am making this pattern but it seems SO much bigger than it's supposed to be! Anyone else seem to have this problem?

this project is adorable and makes me want to go and buy new makeup just for that bag!!!!!

I do not crochet, but wish I did, this bag is beautiful and so ready for spring! Anyone should be proud to show it off...Keep up the good work.

I like her choice of yarn. Not only is it fresh and in time for spring, nut it almost looks liked a checker board. I have always wanted to learn how to sew a zipper to a crochet item. This would be a small and easy way to try. This bag will make cute gifts for my daughters.

I may make this bag -- but I'm thinking I'll use velcro closures instead of a zipper closure. It looks like it would be hard to sew the zipper in with a sewing machine, and I would NOT attempt to hand sew it -- too hard on my arthritic hands. Other than that -- it's a nice size bag and quite useful too.

Lovely Little Case...a girl can't never have enough makeup bags. I think for a little Contrast you should make the flower adornment either a shade darker or lighter to stand out against the bag. Better yet make a few different flowers and use Velcro dots and "voila" you have a bag for all occasions! I love versatility! Cheers! SgurlGoddess

Me and zippers have a love hate relationship. So, I do one of two things. Make an I-cord loop and attach it to one side of the bag, then add a large button on the other side. Or if its in need of being closed completely I use velcro. Love the tote, its next on my list to make.

I like to use velcro when appropriate instead of zippers. I especially like the velcro dots that come 8 or so in a package.

I am making the cosmetics bag, but the copy of the pattern does not show how to connect the bag together or how to put in the zipper
Oct 21, 2013
Margiek, Instructions for putting the bag together are included with the instructions for the 41st row of the gusset. Apparently, the designer of this bag thinks we know how to sew a zipper into a crocheted item, which is something I've never done. I'm almost positive I saw instructions on another site somewhere for this process, but now I don't know exactly where that was...

I made up this fantastic little bag and it turned out GREAT All I have to do is put in the zipper and it will be done I am also going to sew in a satin lining which I think will just set it off To dzjan I don't see why you couldn't get some velcro binding and use that You could use small strips along the inside This would make the reverse single crochets stand up but I think it would look fine that way as well I am delighted to find this pattern and can't wait to try it in different colors and use them in my next craft show As to the roses I started with one end and just continued to twist my piece around holding at the bottom starting chain as I went along until it formed the rose Then I pulled beginning tail yarn strand…Read More through the bottom unworked loops of the starting chains to secure it I made my tail long enough so I could also use what was left over to attach it to the bag It worked out wonderfully And you are supposed to make two roses one for each side but I decided to use just one rose so it would identify the front of the bag I made this bag in one night It was super quick and easy I LOVE this little bag

I'm not good at zippers...anyone got any helpful advice? or something else that I may substitute for a closure? Thanks for your help!

Oct 23, 2010

This is an adorable little bag! As for the roses, I think Pandalover13 is right but it is your craft! put one on each side, 2 on the same side, clusters of them, whatever you want to do!
Aug 30, 2010
To both Angel27 and Mackena, I think you are supposed to put 1 rose on each side, and they only show one side. That's how I plan on doing it whenever I get around to making this CUTE little bag!
May 11, 2010
MC means main color - in other words, the color you crocheted the bag in. Usually patterns use CA, CB, etc. for Color A or Color B, and so on. As for why multiple flowers, I cannot guess. Perhaps that was just a typo. I hope this helped anyway.
