So I found this site: http://www.allcrafts.net/crochet/knittingpurses.htm And I went through quite a few of the links before I found one that would be simple to try out first. I wanted to start with something small and work my way up to a bigger project. So I am making a cell phone bag but I am actually making it as a tiny purse.
The pattern I am using is this one: http://www.straw.com/cpy/patterns/deco_cellphone_bag1.html
But I have changed it a bit. I am making 1 long strap instead of 2 short straps and I am making a closure for the top.
I am using a knitting tower to make the long strap.
