Here are three free Fashion Doll patterns for a handbag purse, tote, and shoulder bag. These are crafted by crocheting with recycled cassette tape as yarn. Just rewind an old cassette tape and cut the tape at the beginning of the brown tape. Pull out the brown tape end to work your project. The tape will pull out freely from the reel. There is no need to open up the case.

Then continue Sc in each stitch around to the other side’s handle opening. Crochet 4 Sc around the chain for the handle.
Sc in next 5 stitches and Sl St into last stitch to even out the top edge of purse.
(Tip: To make the handle opening even on both sides and to have balanced stitches on either side of handles, you may have to make adjustments.
You may need to add one Sc or do one less Sc to make the purse balanced on both sides and the handle opening so it’s in the middle of the purse.
Once you have it even on both sides, finish off and weave in ends on the inside of purse.

    This also works well with 1/8″ ribbon, though I found it looks better if I turn the second purse inside out once it’s finished.
