The Handmaiden’s Purse

I’ve been inspired by Chris’ Netmaking Tutorials, and thought I’d design a crocheted net bag. My intention was to make a simple tote bag and include a few tufts/bobbles in the design, then this pattern started to emerge, and a simple tote bag became a beautiful Handmaiden’s Purse.
