Ruffled Purse

Isn’t this ruffled handbag absolutely adorable? I love everything about this, from the bamboo handles to the ruffled details on the bottom of the bag. If you’ve never crocheted something like a bag before, this is a super easy first project for you to work on! It’s pretty straightforward – you’ll start by crocheting around one of the bamboo handles, and then continue in rows of half double crochet until you reach the other handle.
