Welcome to Fun Crochet Designs!
Easy to make! Fun to use! Perfect to
give away as gifts! Those are my criteria for a good
I'm a girly-girl in the extreme. I
love pretty colors, soft textures, and anything that
sparkles. So my idea of a good crochet project is a fun,
feminine, flirty piece that feeds the fashionista in me!
Thirty-two years ago, an extremely
patient, saint-of-a-woman taught me and ten or so other
8-year-old girls to crochet for our Bible School craft
project. Somehow, that teacher retained her sanity and I
retained a love for yarn. I took to the hook and have
been crocheting ever since, making everything from
doilies, to baby clothes, sweaters and footies, hats and
scarves. After 20 years, I abandoned patterns and
started experimenting with my own designs.
My purse patterns have become, by far,
the most popular items I have designed. I bought a roll
of unusual cord one day and decided to play around with
it. I ended up with a small purse that my friends and
family oohed and ahhed over. I made a few more as gifts,
which led to requests, and a small business, making and
selling them. They are easy and fun to make and always
well received as gifts. I can no longer keep up with the
demand so I've decided to share the patterns with the
world and let you make your own. You won't regret it. On
second thought, maybe you will when you see how much
your girlfriends and sisters love these little purses.
They won't let you rest with their begging for more of
these hand-made treasures.
Other items that have been popular
with my test subjects ... I mean, friends and family ...
are my scarf patterns, and kitchen designs. I am getting
all of my favorite patterns ready for you to experiment
with. I hope you and the recipients of your crochet
talents will enjoy!
