11. Italian Spy Handbag Crochet Pattern by Linda Dean Crochet

If you want a handbag that can carry the essentials, not weigh a lot, and one that I can comfortably keep close, this Italian Spy Handbag fits that build. It is a simple pattern that uses less then one skein, and utilizes a simple tight stitch.

But, just because it is worked in single crochet do not under estimate the overall effect of the fabric, or how it can easily show your mistakes. The pattern is worked in one piece, and then folded and seamed.

There is an option to stiffen the sides and bottom, and options for the finishing edge.
