Crochet Handbag

I love the way the Bonnie Craft Cord in the color tan worked up.  I bought 2 (50 yd) skeins in 4mm. I used a 10mm hook and single crochet stitch throughout.

1.  Chain 16.  Sc in 2nd ch from hook and remaining chains.  In the last st, 3 sc stitch.  Turn and work on opposite side of foundation.  Sc in each st.  In the last st, 2 sc.
2.  Continue using sc throughout.  On each end, I placed 2 sc st into each of the 4 corners.  I did this for 3 more rounds.
3.  I then just continued to SC around until I was satisfied with the height.  I also wanted to save back enough cord to see on the handles.
4.  I weaved cord into the last completed row to give a cleaner finish look.

I sewed embellishment and handles on and added a liner.

I really think the jeweled embellishment, owl liner and microfiber handles added a wonderful touch of elegance to this handbag.
