Mermaid Tears Purse...

I did these two purses from the Bernat forum Crochet-Along. Really a cool pattern and fun to do. I learned a few new things in doing this project. I am going to give these to my daughter and granddaughter. Pretty neat! Matching purses!!

What a great stitch. Gives really good texture. Is this a free or available pattern? I have a young niece who would really like it. Have you a link?

Wonderful looking purses. I don't think I have seen this stitch before. Interesting.

Yes, it's a free download. You should be able to get ir here. You can also see how-to videos on this purse here. The video is a 5 part series and I found them very helpful. The crocodile stitch for the body of the purse and they method to make the handles are really cool and fun to do!

Actually, no. They don't have them yet. I'm waiting to give them to my daughter on her birthday on June 12th. It's killing me to hold on to them until then!! I can't wait to see their reaction!!!
