The Making of a Crochet Animal Purse

Curious about what goes into making one of my crocheted animal purses? Be curious no longer. 

 It starts off with some basic materials, yard, crochet hook, needle, scissors, stuffing and finishing touches. Weilding my trusty crochet hook, and mini folding scissors I get started.
First I make all the parts, the bag, the handles, some legs, a head and in the case of froggy here, some cute frog eyes. A little stuffing and it's time to put it all together.
A little needle work to bring all the pieces together. Handles go onto the bag, head is attached, eyes stitched in place, and all the legs added.
Some final touches, such as the button eyes and embroidered facial features, and 4 or 5 hours later this cute little guy is born.

I hope you enjoyed this little peek into my crochet world. Come visit any time.

Happy Crafting,
