This year with my daughter being so active, it hasn't been quite as easy to get everything done in a "timely" manner -- especially because my goal this Christmas is to try and make 75% of the gifts.
Now, although I REALLY don't like giving gift cards or money for Christmas (I think it's a cop out), when it comes to my husband's two secretaries (who are awesome, by the way!), they will receive a Christmas bonus (some nice moola). What better way to receive a bonus than in a cute crocheted micro-purse?!
Tampa Bay Crochet's free "Credit Card Cozy" pattern (found on The Crocheting Itch -- Free Crochet Patterns here) is what inspired me to make the micro-purses. Her pattern follows the KISS principle (keep it seriously simple) -- it was clear, easy to follow, and quick! I finished both of my micro-purses in about a half hour. Then I glued on a flower button with a green gemstone to add some sparkle. If you would like to make one, here's what you'll need:
