I designed this bag one day when I came across all these "yarn ball tails" that had accumulated in my craft room. Together, all these strands of yarn made a few skeins' worth, but alone they were mismatched, mis-textured, and all-around crazy... so why not tie them together, crochet them up, and see what happens? After a few trials and errors, I determined that alternating the "stripe" orientation produced the most pleasing and unique results.

The Magic Ball Purse is the perfect size for everyday essentials, and the perfect attention-grabbing awesomeness to rock, well, every day! The best part? It’s lined with a gorgeous gray-mauve fabric patterned with small green flowers.

Squares are crocheted from a “magic ball” of yarn, made by tying a bunch of short lengths of varied yarns together to create a single long string that yields a new surprise with every row. I then stitched the squares together and finished the bag with a border of bright blue yarn. The Magic Ball Purse boasts a durable braided strap and multifaceted flower-like black button closure.This bag is sure to impress with its melding of unpredictability and order!

Bag measures 12” by 8”
Braided strap measures 20”
Bag is lined with gray-mauve fabric with small green flowers
Closes with all-black multi-faceted flower-look button
