After my Hex-y Tote bag, I got a little excited about bags. I found a lot of free patterns, but the Flower Burst Handbag intrigued me. It is made with a whole lotta single crochets, but has a band of open flowers around the center. It's adorable!
The original bag on The C Side blog was a solid green and absolutely fantastic. It is perfect for a vacation or a trip to the beach. The bag is unlined so you can see through the flower motif.
The pattern was fairly simple, but I lost count somehow and ended up with more flowers than could fit in the base of my bag. I also lost count above my flowers and had to wing it a bit. Hopefully, the result isn't too off what the designer intended.
Take a trip over to The C Side to see her other designs.
