Wool on Sundays – 109 (Time)

small crochet purse tute 1

Start with a circle…

Welcome to another Wool on Sundays already! When I was a child, the grown ups used the expression ‘not in a month on Sundays’ to mean pretty much never but now I feel as if it’s Sunday every other day! They also used to say ‘Time goes faster when you get old.’ :(


I enjoyed hearing everyone’s thoughts about yarn bombing last week. I think the general consensus was that we all love to see a good yarn bomb but some of us do have reservations about wastefullness – and concerns about rain. Also, last week a couple of people asked about how I made the crochet purse.


I was hoping to do a tute and I have made another one and taken photos but I haven’t had time to write it up yet, what with gardening and a diversion into EPP hexies, but I’ll do that as soon as I can and put a link here.

[Edited to add: The Small Crochet Purse Tutorial is now available here]

Here is a sneak peek:

Have you had time for any yarn bombing or useful making this week?

If so, I’d love you to link up. The rules are: 1). Posts must include some content – makes or musings or photos – related to knitting, crochet, felting, spinning or yarn. 2). Projects sewn from felt or wool fabric or stitchery using wool are also welcome but please don’t link posts that are exclusively about sewing, quilting and fabrics. 3). Posts don’t have to be from the past week but please put a link to WOOL ON SUNDAYS or grab the button from my sidebar and include it in or at the bottom of any posts you link up. 4). MOST IMPORTANT Visit anyone else who links.

    My mum was always saying “not in a month of Sundays”. Love, love, love your little purse. A tute sounds like an excellent idea. When I learn the art of crocheting, I just might be in need of those instructions. =)

    I like Not IN A MONTH OF SUNDAYS a lot better than…When Pigs Fly…or…Talk To The Hand. Once in A Blue Moon is OK.

    I bought a purse frame..the first step to this purse. Now I’m going to look for yarn that I am not using in other projects that were supposed to use my stash but have caused me to buy even MORE yarn, lol. I think this little purse would make perfect gifts for anyone. Definitely a great gift to keep on hand for unexpected Christmas visitors. I love it so much. Thank You!
