Recycled Girl’s Sunshine Purse

February 7, 2008 10 comments

This week’s featured recycled bag is a girl’s purse. I call it the Sunshine Purse. Spring is coming and this would be a bright and colorful bag for any young girl. It is crocheted from plastic grocery bags using a granny square stitch. I added a small flowered button to finish off the bag.

I hope you enjoy crocheting this purse for a special little girl in your family or for someone you know. As always you will find the complete free recycled purse pattern below.
