Here’s a unique little crochet circle purse design for you guys. It works best with t shirt yarn, which seems to be getting very popular.
No size adjustments necessary for this one. The only hardware you will need is the chain and the zipper. I’ve included affiliate links for the hardware and materials.
I think it’s a cute little design you will enjoy. If you’d like the printable PDF version, it’s available on my Etsy shop here.

The end of round 12 cut the yarn and weave the end.* just on one piece of the bag. You don’t need to cut the yarn on the other piece because we will use the yarn to join the two sides.
Join the bag together
You can use any method you prefer, I used a flat slip stitch join. You can also use a yarn needle to join the pieces together. I joined 28 stitches together, leaving 20 stitches open for the zipper opening. See the picture below for the flat slip stitch join.
Congratulations on your new bag! Thanks for letting me walk you through this cute little crochet circle purse.
