Sassy Frass Scrappy Purse

sassy frass scappy purses

These are what have filled my needles lately. More on why later. Today I thought I would share this very simple pattern with you. This is an easy little girls knit purse that I call the Sassy Frass Scrappy Purse because it’s the perfect project to use up that leftover yarn from bigger projects. As you can see from my instructions, it is very versatile. You can make it in any size you want!

Turn inside out and you have a little girl’s purse! If you want to add to it, you can cut flowers out of felt and sew them on or crochet little flowers to sew on.

*You can make the strap as long or short as you want. I like the longer strap for the vertical purse and the shorter one for the horizontal purse.

This pattern is available for personal use only. Please do not profit off this pattern.

I just watched your first video and it is gorgeous. The photo on your knitting blog, of your daughter is also incredible. Both the photo and the first video (I will watch the others later) are stunning images exuding a most pure love. Thank you for sharing such beauty.

When i got my house by costa rica homes for sale i took all my document in my purse. Thanks God my purse was very big I had no problem. That´s why i prefer to use big bag every time. I really love it, because they are very comfortable.

I made this purse for my 15 month old niece and she LOVED it! It was so easy to make and the directions were easy to follow (although I added a bit of strength to the handle by doing more rows). I'm making another for a friend's 14 month old. Thank you!
