crochet purse - Arcade stitch

While browsing thru the net we come across lots of stitches in crochet, embroidery, needlepoint emboirdery etc.  I went crazy once and saved the links for lots of crochet stitches.  I wanted to do a sampler with those stitches.  Atleast i want to crochet a small block with those stitches and then join them.  I hope one day this wish will come true.  In that to do list of stitches I like the Arcade crochet stitch. It works up quickly and i have made that piece of sample into a purse. Look at it.I have done it last year but only today i am showcasing it.  

I have learned the this stitch from here.  You can find so many crochet stitches and patterns in that blog.  Thank you Joachim for the tutorial.

Look what I have kept inside during one of our trips.

I didn't attach a zipper.  Instead I have attached a velcro. The inside look......

Want to see other pouches i have made.  Do have a look at my Yellow pouch here.

In my next post i will come with a small embroidery piece.  Till then,  Happy crocheting.
