Eagerly waiting for your response!

      The purse is very cute! I'm wondering though, what size hooks do you use? What weight of yarn, and how much yarn?

    3. Hey Thanks Alot!
      I am really sorry I didn't post that!
      Actually this was the first pattern I wrote so I didn't mention that! :P
      BTW I used a number 4 hook for the crocodile stitches and 3.5 hook for edging and 4 ply yarn. Specifically it was Madame Tricote Paris yarn-Carnaval. Hope that helped you! <3
      And sorry again.

      1. Hey,thanks so much for stopping by and I am so happy you like the pattern. This pattern for a skirt makes the size of a toddler. If you are making it into a bag then yes it does have a flat bottom. The length and width can be adjusted if you want.

      2. Hi! I love both the skirt and the purse. My Granddaughter is turning only five. But, I can see it on her. I'm not a seamstress, so how do I know how to size it?
        And, yes, I would love to see a tutorial. I love tutorials.
        Thank you for your talent and sharing.

      3. Hi Patricia! Thanks so much for stopping by and I am glad you like both of them!
        well, about the sizing you just have to keep increasing the rows of the crocodile stitches for the length whereas if you want to increase the size of the waist, you can increase the chain stitches in the starting and make adjustments!
        thanks once again and your welcome
        I'll try to make the tutorial as soon as possible!
