We want to start gathering materials for our summer road trip a.k.a Tapestry Crochet Coin Purse.

We should have most of the yarn/thread since we are going to use lots of remnants from our stash, so that part is easy. Next we need to buy the metal part of the coin purse, and it should look like this:  

You can find it at JoAnn’s or Michael’s if you live in the USA and if not,  just ask your local craft store if they have it in the bag making isle. If that doesn’t work then you have Amazon.

I found these on Amazon, and they will ship it to you.

As for hooks, you know how to choose: if you have yarn then go with the size that will work with your type of yarn. If you are using thread, like me, then you want a hook for threads. I leave that up to you.

Keep your supplies in one spot don’t be like me and misplace anything, it is a waste of time (plus utterly annoying) looking for stuff you know you have but cannot find 🙂

I am working on the design which will be simple enough for beginners to take part. I am a beginner so trust me it won’t be complicated.

this road trip will be by river 🙂

I am excited are you?! If so, then the fun has just begun.. 🙂

Enjoy today and stay inspired….See You Soon…

thanks to google and amazon for images

  2. Awesome and beautiful. Looking forward to (your) trip. It is going to be fun!!
    ps: I recently found a lady here in SA that sells those cute purse clips as well, in 2 different sizes, and I went and ordered a few of each. Now I need to make something with them I suppose? 🙂
    Have a safe trip!

    • LOL there’s lots and lots of beautiful patterns out there, I am not trying to chose from those, I am making something more basic all my own design and lets hope it “passes the test” of tapestry crochet lol 🙂


  4. Now that’s a road trip I could get into!
