this is the crocodile tears purse from the mikeysmail video tutorial on you tube same pattern for top and bottom picture

 i always change the pattern to suit myself so your bag may turn out differnt  to mine some of the patterns i just used for inspiration 

i made a baby blanket for my ikkle baby cousin

Original pattern from

I have been given permission to translate the pattern into English for you

Tools needed

3.5mm hook
3 skeins of Lion brand cotton ease yarn ( normal worsted works up the same )
fabric to match colour scheme of your bag
yarn needle

African flower instructions can be found here

leave off the last round

for this bag you need 18 motifs follow the instructions from above link

then join them together so they match the picture below

once joined you need to sew up the 2 long sides like the picture below

once all sew together you can add the lining

to make the handle you need to chain 125 turn sc in each ch across

change colour at the end of each row and repeat each row till u have 10 rows finish off and line.

sew the handles on

the original pattern can also be found on the link below

tips for sewing the motifs together

personally i just Wip stitch mine together with a needle and yarn or there is a alternative that can be found here
