As our celebration of Crochet continues, I thought I would share this fun way to use some of those small scraps of yarn - Scrappy Purses!

What I did was take some of those partial skeins of yarn and tied them together. Then I wrapped the yarn into a ball. As you crochet the yarn switches colors.

You can see that this purse changes colors as I crocheted along. Anything with this scrap method is automatically one of a kind and unique, there is no way to duplicate this purse without a lot of effort. Not everyone cares about one of a kind uniqueness but I like it. I am unique, why not have my very own unique purse?   

Here is another example. I just love the way this one worked out. I had a ton of purple but tried to break it up into several rows and this one you can tell started with a lot of purple. Sometimes there is a lot of a color, sometimes just a few stitches, but in the end it all looks cool!

Have fun hookin' this month and for the rest of your life! Share with us your fun crochet ideas, we love them!
