Pattern Correction 31 Mar 17
This pleated mesh purse is super cute and can be used every day!

I used Hobby Lobby I Love This Yarn! in Mango and in Coffee and also purchased the fabric there as well. I used a sewing machine to sew the lining and pockets but of course, you can do it by hand if you prefer.

Any medium weight yarn will work for this project. You can also make the strap longer or shorter as well as making the bag bigger or smaller.

If you have any questions please feel free to contact me! I used a 5 mm (H) size crochet hook.

The little coin purse was just something I whipped up with the remaining yarn - it is not included in the pattern but is made using the same pattern technique just on a smaller scale.

Please visit my blog and leave a comment on if you like this pattern. I would love to see your finished creations!

I am charging $5.50 for the PDF format for all of my patterns, but have them written out on my blog at
