Wish I had a pattern for this Gymboree bag. Think I can figure it out? I’d change the colors to match a pretty little dress.
Since I finished the butterfly poncho for Peytan, I began thinking about cute little girl’s patterns for this Spring. What little girl wouldn’t love to have a special little purse to go with her Easter dress? (Actually, my own daughter, now 21, would have nothing to do with a dress, much less a purse until she was over 14!! But, I can dream, can’t I?)
So, I surfed the net and found some patterns that might be of interest. I’ve linked them below. Most are really simple little bags that can be made special with your own choice of pretty yarns and perhaps a motif appliqued onto it – say a Spring flower or a star or a balloon or whatever might interest the little girl in your life.
Please let me know what you think about these patterns.
http://jl56.tripod.com/handbags.html – this is a super simple style that done in two strands of yarn. You could jazz it up or leave it plain.
http://www.crochetville.org/forum/showthread.php?t=21506 – another very simple design, shown in two different colors with optional embellishments.
http://www.crochetville.org/forum/showthread.php?t=32095 – for something TOTALLY different, this would be just the ticket! Use your imagination to create an exquisitely colorful Shark Tails purse for your sweetie!
http://www.geocities.com/Heartland/Cottage/3606/bag4p.html – a ‘different’ little drawstring bag done in cotton. This would be very sweet done in Spring colors.
http://www.crochetmemories.com/archive/june2.html – a sunny little tote that would brighten any outfit. Change the colors to suit yourself.
http://hometown.aol.com/crochetalong/littletote.html – a Priscilla Hewitt design, very simple. I love the variegated look of it and the simple lines.
http://www.bellaonline.com/articles/art11383.asp – a Pixie Purse that lends itself to all kinds of alterations. Pick beads that set off the Easter dress. A totally different shape that may well appeal to a slightly older child.
Finally, Thata’s blog has a several bags that would work for a little girl. Check them out for inspiration!
THATA’s purse is above. Thata emailed me about another great pattern for a little girl. Take a look. There’s a pattern w/schematics and a picture also.
First link is to the picture.
