Gram-Mae’s Purse

Gram-Mae’s Purse Crochet Pattern

My Gram loved crocheting flowers. In the Gram-Mae’s Purse crochet pattern I will be using one of the flowers my Gram designed and I created a crochet pattern for, the Mae’s Flower.

Making the Gram-Mae’s Purse is a fun little project you can crochet any time of year.  You can make it in one color or as many colors as you like.  There are so many uses for a purse like this; carrying your WIPs, making for the little ones, carrying your essentials, and SO much more!

History behind the Design

The design came about because I have had an Afghan my Gram started over 25 years ago using a flower she designed.  In 2022 I finally decided to take one of her flowers apart from her Afghan.  I wanted to see how she made it so I could finish her Afghan. 

Because I loved her flower design so much that I decided to create the Maes Flower crochet pattern.  I was able to finish my Gram’s Afghan.  Also, my Gram’s Afghan was so easy to put together, that I decided to create another crochet, which I then turned into the Mae’s Flower Garden Afghan crochet pattern in honor of my Gram.

You can find the Mae’s Flower Crochet Pattern that I designed using these flowers free HERE on my website. 

You can also find an Ad-Free copy of the Mae’s Flower crochet pattern at my Ravelry and LoveCrafts Stores.
