Kacee Purse - Free Crochet Pattern

upclosekacee.jpg

Hey, Guy’s! I am so excited to share the Kacee Purse with you all today! This design was inspired by Lion Brand yarns Mako cotton. This yarn has to be the fluffiest yarn I have ever put my hands on. As soon as I touched it I knew it needed to become a purse. The Kacee purse has a “knit” look that is most definitely crochet, featuring a cable accent. The handles used for this piece were found at Hobby Lobby but you can really use any handle you come across.

The best part about this purse? My toddler loves it! This purse makes a great gift for any little girl!
