Vintage Crochet Bag and Purse Patterns
Crochet Your Own Bags and Purses From Vintage Patterns
t's easy to make your own unique designer bag or purse from vintage crochet patterns. Why vintage? Because there's more variety and better quality when you reach back into the 1930s through the 1950s for your crochet patterns. You get better patterns at a lower cost. Modern crochet patterns aren't as detailed, and are usually just reworks of the old patterns anyway.
