love plus one
No Italian wedding is complete without a busta bag. In New Jersey, the bridal couple goes from table to table, greeting guests and collecting the cards and money being gifted. I am not fond of the tradition, but…who am I to stop it? And when in Rome…
Eyelash yarn (I usually make it either in the bridesmaid’s colors or white) 6 skeins
Size g crochet hook
Chain 50, 2 tc, ½ double crochet back 50-2 tc. Repeat for 80 rows.
Fold in half. Single crochet sides to enclose purse. I usually do two rows across the sides and bottom.
For strap: Chain 150, 2 tc, ½ double crochet back 150, 2 tc, continue for about 10 rows. Attach to the inside of purse.
Attach ribbon roses
