What you need to know

Make a crochet dog or owl coin purse with these fun patterns from Irene Strange.

You can never have too many handbags, but we think the same is also true of purses. Whether you opt for our adorable owl or playful puppy design, both by Irene Strange, they're surprisingly simple to make, particularly if you already have a little stitching experience. We think you'll be thrilled with the results, and will soon be bombarded with requests to make them for all your friends. Use DK from your yarn stash.

What do I need?

Yarn, DK: white, blue, grey, lilac, yellow, coral, orange
Hook, 3.5mm
Zip: 4in, 6in

Meet the designer
