This is a purse that I have designed for my upcoming website. But I thought I would share it here until my website is live. Hope you enjoy. Optional flower motif is also included. This is a quick and easy project for even a novice crocheter. Please email or PM me if you have any problems.

I had a friend test it, who is an average crocheter, and she finished hers in less than 2 days, of non-constant crochet. I was thinking each purse works up in less than 6 hours, however, I am not sure about other crocheters. Let me know how long one takes you, please.

What do single women do on Valentine's Day when all of their girls are taken? I'm 23, living on my own, single (no kids), with school and a job and have pretty much everything caught up with but this weekend is valentine's day. My friends will probably all be busy with their "man" and I'll probably be at home watching horror flicks eating a box of chocolates all to myself- anyone purpose a better idea?
