This is a free crochet along pattern for creating the Purple Passion Project Purse. This pattern is divided into three parts that can be found below.
Yet again, the bag slipped off her arm as the bus bounced over a rut in the road. Yarn and project spilled out onto the floor in a tangled mess.
“Shoot,” she muttered angrily under her breath.
A kindly grandmother sitting across from her witnessed the predicament. “Oh, no. That is most unfortunate.”
She forced a smile and said politely to the old lady, “Yes, but it’s okay. It happens a lot so I’m used to it.”
The old lady tisked at the mess. “That’s surely no way to live. Might I make a suggestion, dear?”
She looked up and narrowed her eyes at the old lady unsure of what she should expect. “I suppose…”
“Make yourself a project bag – one with a wide handle. You’ll find it doesn’t slip off your arm so easily in the future. Ah, here’s my stop.” The old lady gingerly gathered her belongings and shuffled off the bus without another glance back.
Do you need a project bag? Join in this crochet along to make one too! The crochet along is over, but the pattern is still available for free.
When I recently asked what my followers would like to see next as a crochet along it a very strong vote for a bag. Well, as always your wish is my command and I went right to it.
Luckily, I realized I really wanted to make a crochet project bag using one skein of Caron Big Cakes. It worked out perfectly as I used almost all of it.
Which means for this crochet along, also known as CAL, you will simply need one skein of any color combination of a Caron Big Cake and a 5mm hook.
Be sure to use the hashtag #PurplePassionProjectPurseCAL on social media, so I can follow along on your journey to create this awesome bag.
There are a few other materials you will need, but these are the basics. I have listed the rest below.

Furthermore, I you will need to know 3 different types of stitch patterns that are featured on this Purple Passion Project Purse. The great thing is, I will break up the pattern such that you will be working on one stitch pattern at the time.
First, we will be making the rectangular bottom of the purse which features the thermal stitch to provide a great amount of stability.
Next, we will work on the main bottom of the bag which has a beautiful textured due to the Tri Square stitch pattern.
And lastly, we will be finishing the bag using the Linked Treble Crochet stitch on the edge and handle of the bag. Finally, we are adding some buttons and then show off our beautiful crochet project bags to everyone.
