Crochet Handbag/Purse

After getting together for our local "Stitch 'N' Bitch" with friends and being told I had an ugly crochet bag - I thought I'd better make something a little more presentable:) 
I didn't want to spend a lot of time to make it so of course I used a large hook and thick yarn.  After shopping around for handles and not finding anything that would look nice I headed to the local thrift shop.
There I found a few old bags with great handles - $2.00 each!  Great deals:)
Anyway now I am offering this free crochet handbag pattern to you.  I hope you really enjoy making it.
