Mobile Phone/Coin Purse

Hello again.

I have been making these purses for a while now.  These had been keeping me busy lately. 

This design was inspired by the crochet blankets that Lola Rose (my brother's mom-in-law who is so good at crochet too!) had been making.  Looking at it more closely, it resembles long and short stitches in embroidery.  Is there a name for this stitch?

I saw this pattern while surfing the net (I think it was on FB).  In fact, it was merely a scanned diagram from a magazine and uploaded on Facebook.  I decided to print it out. To my dismay, the diagram wasn't that clear and it was disappointingly so small that I had to use a magnifying glass just to count exactly how many chains and trebles were there.  I ended up with a diagram, resembling the one I printed out. Try after try (sigh!), i finally got to finish this purse. =)

This purse has a hand-sewn lining and zip.

For sure, I'll be making more of these. Happy crafting, everyone!
