- work 11 sc and then work 3 sc in beginning of ch, work around this base using single crochet and double crochet until you achieve desired shape, cut yarn
- to continue making purse, crochet onto this shape using sc and dc to form other shapes off of the main shape
- make a front and back and sew toegther
- to make strap, work 4 sc onto corner, alternate between 4 sc and 5 sc to make a strap that isn't quite straight.
