Little Button Bag
"If you are like most women, you can’t get enough of fun bags and purses. And, if you’re like me, you can’t really afford to buy all the fancy bags you want. But being crafty has its benefits ... we can make our own bags!
"This Little Button Bag is a fun, quick wristlet-style purse - just right for keeping your smaller items organized in the depths of your big bag. It’s the perfect size for your 'monthly' female necessities, complete with a strap to fit around your wrist for discreetly carrying to the restroom. A basketweave pattern along the middle of the bag adds a nice detail and gives it a bit of texture. Pick your favorite button and colors to match and you’ll have a special little purse in no time."

Basket Weave is one of my all time favorite textures! This charming little wristlet is just the right size for the necessities, too. I love the contrast between the tightly worked Single Crochet on the bottom and flap and the Basket Weave stitches for the body. Combined, they give this simple bag a unique look. Thanks for finding and posting this one!
