Dotted Windows purse / Making of a crochet purse - part 1 with video

 Hi all

Hope all are doing.  I have crocheted many purses for the past few years.  But haven't done any video of making it.  Today I am happy to share with you a video tutorial plus the written pattern of a purse which I have crocheted this week.  It is a different experience making a video.  

Here is the video tutorial. 

I have given the name dotted windows because the sc made along with chain 2 looks like a dot when the chain 2 space is filled with dc's in the next round.  

Let me show you the purse I have crocheted.

The pattern is very simple. I have used 4 ply acrylic yarn and a 3 mm hook.
