I have finally made another crochet tutorial for YouTube! Phew. This one is for a cute little crochet purse. I wanted to show how to sew in a zipper and then, at the last minute, I decided to go all the way and add a demo for sewing the fabric lining too!
The response from the crochet Easter Egg pattern (my first crochet tutorial) was amazing, absolutely amazing! Thank you so so much. It has definitely spurred me on to make more video tutorials to demonstrate different crochet techniques and patterns.
Anyway, if you are a crochet expert but have always wondered how to attach a zipper to your project, or you’re interested in how to line your crochet projects, this is the tutorial for you.
Things You Need to Line Your Crochet
- Cotton aran yarn (or another yarn of your choice). I used Drops Paris.
- 4.5mm hook.
- Zipper in the length of the purse you want.
- Fabric for lining.
- Needle for darning in the crochet ends.
- Needle and threads for sewing zip and lining.
Little Cotton Crochet Purse
Here are a few pics of the starting process for how to crochet a little purse. Don’t forget, you can work a chain as long as you like. Make sure your foundation chain is a couple of stitches longer than the actual zip because the work shrinks down slightly smaller than the foundation chain.
This simple pattern is worked from the bottom up and then worked in the round. To get the full “How To”, please hop over to YouTube for the cotton purse video tutorial. Cheers.
