The pattern is from www.lionbrand.com. However, the handles are my own creation. I used half the needle size recommended and a thinner yarn to get a tiny purse, still it is big enough to fit wallet, cell phone, keys, tissues and even a bit make up. In artificial light it sparkles nicely :D
In real the pleats come out much better, but unfortunately, you cannot see that on the photos.
ca. 100 g of yarn, crochet needle 3 mm
(more yarn and bigger needle for a larger size)
