This is a good beginner purse, tote, or bag to start with, especially if you know the chain and single crochet stitch. This is crocheted in the round (specifically in a spiral) and then the straps are added at the end. This pattern uses magnetic snaps, which are a great alternative to just a button or a zipper. Because the hand bag is crocheted with 2 strands of yarn held together, it is very sturdy, durable, and does not need a lining.

There is a step-by-step YouTube tutorial video for this pattern.
