With an I hook and standard weight 4 acrylic (gauge not important, just make sure your stitches are tight enough to not leave holes)
Weight 4 acrylic yarn (less than 1 skein)
Fun fur (less than 1 skein)
Round 1: SC Even across, 2 in last, flip and work cross other side of foundation chain(40)
Round 2: SC around (40)
Round 3: SC Back loops only, even (40)
Round 4 - 19: SC even around (40)
Round 20: Hold 1 strand of fun fur in with your yarn. SC even around, ch 1 and turn
Round 21: Hold 1 strand of fun fur in with your yarn. SC even around
Handle: With 1 strand yarn, 1 strand fun fur, Ch 80. attach to other side. Fo and sew in tails. Voila
Work even across putting 2 stitches in the last and then flipping to work back across the chain to the beginning stitch. This creates your first round and the start of the base of your purse.
Work even around the circle in every stitch. This will create a small pucker but trust me it looks better at the end.
Working in the back loops only (look at the work, there is a little loop in the front and one in the back, instead of sticking your hook under both just catch the one in the back) work even around (we are still SCing).
Now that we have reached the top add in one strand of fun fur (2 if you want it thicker) and work even around for one row then chain one and turn (up until now we have gone around and around, now we are going back).
Work even back around to the beginning. This will assure that your fur is even around and not all on the inside or outside.
You could easily add a button or velcro to close the purse. I left it open to keep it from being hard/irritating for the little one.
