Simple Child’s Purse – Free Crochet Pattern

A free crochet pattern for a small purse – perfect for a little girl or to use as a clutch!

Free Crochet Pattern for a Little Girls' Purse

My oldest daughter Nonny just had a birthday. As usual we asked her what she would like from us for her birthday.   Her usual requests are always silly. Last year it was a cheeseburger and a princess crown. This year she asked to be a “Fastest Racer Princess.”

  • Racing Jacket – Check
  • Tutu – Check
  • Custom Shirt – Check
  • New Hair Bow – Check

I thought I was done, but apparently all Fastest Racing Princesses need a purse. Oops, mommy had no clue that was a requirement! So, mommy did what she knows best. She made a quick little purse perfect for her size. She really likes it. She helped me with the photos, so the poses may be a little bit silly, but I know you won’t mind (smile).

The pattern has both half double crochet and single crochet. It also utilizes the posts to make it a little interesting.
