The best part about making this purse is starting with the zipper first. An easy chain stitch on the zipper allows you to crochet right off the zipper so that when you cast off you are finished! No zipper to sew in and no tails to weave in. All supplies (yarn, needles, zippers and crochet hooks) are included in the supply fee. Bring a small pair of scissors. First night is chain stitch the zipper. Second night is crocheting your purse. Must know basic crochet stitches.
