A Purse or a Tote?

unnamed (17)

This was fun to make. Of course I did not follow the pattern. That is what I love about crocheting; you can add,  subtract,  cover over or  make right. I call it a forgiving craft..in fact it is a Christian sort of craft in comparison to knitting where every change  in tension is clear for all to see.

This purse?  has a rectangular bottom, instead of round. Rows of half double and then double stitches . I worked in between the stitches instead  of in top to make the bag sturdier and used cotton yarn which stretches less than worsted yarn.

I altered the pattern somewhat but here is the original free pattern
