Everyone needs a cupcake purse, right? After seeing crocheted cupcake purses on Ravelry I just had to make my own. I started out with the basic pattern (this pattern is for a cradle purse, I just skipped all the interior elements and made a plain purse) and added an extra fuchsia frill around the middle. I really like how the bottom part looks, the front and back post double crochet really mimics a knitted look, but is sooooo much faster. The bottom did seem a little wimpy though and once it’s filled with girly stuff it doesn’t stand up as nice, hmmmm, I guess I’ll make another one and add some more frills, oh and beads too! I made two bottoms for this one and added plastic canvas in between the layers to make a nice sturdy bottom that would stand up and help the cupcake keep its shapes. I added pony beads to my yarn before I started to crochet and then crocheted them into the “frosting” at regular intervals. I also did more single crochet through the back loop only to allow me to add extra frills around the center and at the top. This is exactly what I going for, now who needs a cupcake purse?
