Pleated Purse

This is a popular pattern on ravelry right now (Easy Pleated Crochet Bag), and it lives up to the name - very easy to make. It's hard to judge the scale from the pictures, but it's much smaller than I expected. It's really too small to be useful for an adult (even as an evening bag, the scale doesn't look quite right), but it's perfect for a child. I plan to give mine to a seven year old for Christmas.

I'd like to revisit the pattern and make a larger (wider) version. Definite potential.

This is an adorable handbag...I image you can adjust the pattern instructions to make it larger. I like.
