These mini bags are so cute. They are perfect to make as gifts to girls. They will like this to put their make up, lipstick, eye make up and others. These will make a great giveaway, too.

I made a bag very similar to this one last year as a gift to my mother-in-law when she came to visit us. I made hers in pink camo yarn. It turned out very nice. Of the three colors featured for this bag, I prefer the aqua, pink, and heather. Those colors look great for a summer bag and look so tropical.

This mesmerizing mini bag is just the right size for me. I have downsized from the larger purses now that all my children are grown. I just do not have the need for a large purse. I just need my cell phone and my id. This is the perfect bag for me.

I have a tablet that I seldom leave home without and this mesmerizing mini bag is just the right size to fit it in, I measured. So this could double as a cover and a carry bag. For those quick errands, I can plop my wallet in and cell phone and hit the door.

I really like this pattern. And it appears to be very easy to do. I am attending a black and white gala next month and I have the black and white striped dress, shoes and earrings. But no purse. If I make this in black with white stripes it would be perfect.

Isnt it amazing how changing the color and texture of the yarn can make such a difference in the look of a project? This is a sweet little bag. I really like how the handle is worked as part of the bag itselfno need to add anything extra and much sturdier than attaching handles. I love how that Leaping Blocks and Stripes pattern looks so much like needlepoint, too.

An adorable mini bag for moms and daughters alike. Make matching ones for a "mommy and me" look! Vanna's Choice is a great yarn for a project like this. I would also suggest trying the Loops and Threads Impeccable yarn, too. They have great colorful choices, and I am sure to find the combination that I prefer!

This is very cute little bag and would be a great first tote for little girls. The shape of the tote makes it possible to add a long strap to this tote. This would help the handle to last longer.

I just got this pattern today in my 'free crochet pattern of the day' email. I can't wait to try this is lots of color combinations. I just hope the handle holds up and doesn't stretch out.

I am going to change it a little bit. Not put that handle opening in it. Just add a wrist strap at one end or crochet a short strap to hold. I am thinking you are right, the yarn may stretch out. There are a bunch of wAys around it
