I like this crochet purse. It's very simple and easy to use. I cannot see the length of the bag but I want a not too long handle. I want to make this a body bag if I want to use it for safety and security.

Back in the day before backpacks were standard equipment for teens, I had a crocheted bag very similar to this one. I lost it when it was stolen along with my mustard yellow leather wallet. I hadnt thought of that little purse in years! Im not a purse person, but I might just work this up for old times sake.
