Dollar store yarn and fabric for purse

I went to the dollar store today and I found this yarn. Very pretty colors - now I just have to figure out what to do with it. Also in the picture is some pink fabric I bought at Joann Fabrics. I saw a post on that someone had crocheted a purse with strips from 2 old jean shirts she had. I really liked the look of it so I'm going to give it a try.

Here's a picture of what I have done so far with the fabric. I stripped it into 1/2" wide strips and am working it in sc. I'm using a "P" hook. Very stiff and tricky to work with - I think I should of washed the fabric before stripping it.

My rag purse is complete - I don't know if I'll try another anytime soon. I'll see.....
(I explain the other purse in another entry)

  1. Love this purse (and the yarn...for a dollar!!!) don't have the patience to cut all those strips.

  2. What a strange material to hook with. I always worked with wool, cotton, never with this kind of things. Furthermore for me hooking has been - since now - a periodical hobby I left and turned back to.
    You made a lot of nice purses!
