Crochet Cupcake Purse with Cherries on Top
I have brown yarn.. I’m not really a fan of the colour brown.. Well unless it is a hair colour. But not for a yarn. I got it to make a beard but have yet to venture into beard making. So what do I do with this brown yarn? I will make a Crochet Cupcake Purse with Cherries on Top.
This Crochet Cupcake Purse with Cherries on Top took me FOREVER to make.. haha I’ve been at this thing for 2 months, I first made the base then had NO idea how I wanted to do the icing and the base sat around until I got an idea for the icing. I worked up the icing but then came the horror of sewing pieces together. I seriously need to be in the mood for small pieces and sewing!
Yesterday I finally decided to put together my Crochet Cupcake Purse with Cherries on Top after I finished a simple crochet flower and another tape measure elastic because some little fingers got ahold of the one I made. I’m sure those little fingers will be all over this purse first thing in the morning so it’s hidden until I can take some pictures.
And for the boys there’s a Crochet Oscar the Grouch Inspired Trash Can available HERE.

Yarn: I used about a 1/4 of a 5oz ball of Red Heart Soft Yarn Chocolate and about half a 3.5 oz ball of Red Heart Shimmer Yarn Snow. (For the cherries and leaf I used some scrap yarn, The red yarn used was Bernat Satin Yarn Crimson and the leaf was made with some Red Heart Soft Yarn -Guacamole)
Hook: US H8/5.00mm
I used the lid of a sour cream container that measures approximately 4.625″ in diameter.
Puff St – 5 dc in same stitch, draw up a loop, remove hook, insert into first dc and back into working loop, draw up a loop.
Using one strand of Red Heart Soft 3.75 hdc = 1″
Using 2 strands of Red Heart Shimmer 3 hdc = 1″
Notes: It’s useful to use a stitch marker in the first stitch of each rnd. Do not join rnds unless specified.
When you are half way around make sure to insert plastic lid in between layers..
Make a tie with cherries and a leaf…
Insert hook into inside of cherrie and out through the next st, draw up yarn (as shown below).
