Beaded Crochet Purse for Mom

img_0134

A gift for my mother.  Her birthday was in March and I overlooked sharing this finished project.

The only difficult part of this project is to keep track of the first stitch and the placement of each bead in the pattern. You move around in a continuous circle. 

The top around the frame is not worked in a circle. Each row is completed individually, tied off and restarted until you reach the flap height you need.

This little pouch was inspired by my daughter Renee; she is my biggest fan. It is so much fun designing with the person who will wear the piece. This way you know that they will enjoy and use it.

She did not want fringe at the bottom or big accents on the side, just something simple.
I will be making a couple more of these and posting them for sale in the near future. I’m not sure what the colors will be; we will have to wait and see.

What would be your favorite color scheme?  Would you like fringe on the bottom and what type of decorations do you like on the side strand?

What type of decoration would you put on the front or would it be plain? Let me know your thoughts. Who knows, I might make that one next.
