Proud Mama

I am one Proud Mama;) I taught myself how to make crocheted flowers for my cards along the way taught DD how to make a few stitches and walla this is her purse. She made it in just under three hours, flower by Mom. Keep in mind this is her first attempt at something like this and she is twelve. She would love to read your comments so please if you read this post leave her some love.



DD has also taught her friend how to make a few basic stitches, it is so cute to watch them pick out yarn LOL, so many choices it is hard to decide.

Happy Birthday shout to my friend Dana and to TNB on the SCS forum.

Product list...
Red Heart Yarn from Wal Mart
Crochet Hook 4.25

Happy Stamp Day!

Oh my goodness! This is fantastic! It would have taken me at least a week but most likely I would have given up and left it unfinished!
Awesome colors too!

This purse is fabulous! Can't believe it was your DD's 1st attempt at crocheting! Great job! She should be really proud of herself!

You did a wonderful job! Do you take orders? I need someone to teach me how to hold the yarn. For a knitter, crocheting is very hard to learn. You did great!
