I made a round base for my crocheted purse out of strips(5/8in) of cloth so that it would have a sturdy bottom that will hold its shape.It looked like a bowl, two inches deep and then I started chrocheting with yarn to make all the rest of the body--10 rows in single crochet, begining with the first row being one single crochet, two single crochets, but having only one single crochet in each space. I then do 3 rows of a double crochet in each space, then 5 rows of double crochet, ch one over next space, double crochet, one ch over next space all around. Finish the last row with aan edge using, ch5, single crochet on first stitch, repeat, making a picot over each space. Crochet a chain for the desired lenght to make the purse string and make a second one, and insert on the third row of double crochet witgh the spaces.
