Pretty Purses! 20+ Free Crochet Purse Patterns...

I love purses, and you can never have too many in my opinion.  Here are some purses I've collected just for you, from large bags for toting everything, to smaller daintier clutches to carry just the essentials.  A handmade purse makes a great gift too!

Free Crochet Pattern...Squishy Newborn Hats!

These sweet hats are fun and easy to make for a new baby.  Crocheted with soft modern colors and finished off with a cute little applique, they make a thoughtful gift for a new arrival and are a great charity project too!

Squishy Newborn Hats
By Jennifer Dickerson

  • Newborn (height 6 inches, circumference 35 cm/14 inches) Hat is stretchy and will grow with baby just a bit too.
  • Lion Brand Baby's First  Color shown: "Aqua" "Fairy Tale" "Pixie Dust" (Yarn is machine washable so it is suitable for charity donations too, I had lots of yarn leftovers on each skein)
  • K (6.5 mm) Crochet Hook
  • Tapestry Needle

Instructions for Hat:

Note: stitches are worked in the spaces. Click here for a helpful tutorial. Foundation: Ch 4, join with a sl st to form a ring.
Round 1: Ch 3, then work 11 dc into the center of the ring.
Round 2: Ch 3, *1 dc in the first space, 2 dc in the next space, rpt from * to end of round. Close round with a sl st
Round 3: Repeat round 2
Round 4: Ch 3 (counts as a dc). Skip the first space and work a dc in each space around. Close round with a sl st.
Repeat round 4 until hat measures 6 inches from beginning. Fasten off.

Note: I made mine in two different striping patterns, you can make your any way you like, but here's how I did mine, in case you'd like to do the same:
