I choose to iron my two pieces to flatten them out. Using my iron and ironing board, I covered each piece with a piece of fabric (I used a cloth napkin) and ironed each side on the highest heat setting (I didn't do this intentionally, I simply left it at the setting I use when I iron my husband's work clothes).

I didn't hold the iron down for long. I just pressed the iron down in the middle and pushed it outwards in each direction. I did this on each side. Tip: Let the crochet piece cool before moving it from your ironing board. 

Lay and line up your pieces with the right sides facing out and the wrong sides facing each other. Place locking stitch markers around the 9th and 70th stitches. You are using the stitch markers to hold the two pieces together and to mark your spots.

You are going to sc the two pieces together through the back loops only. You are crocheting the stitches between the stitch markers. Your first sc will be at stitch 10 and your last sc will be at stitch 69. The rest of the stitches will remain as they are and will serve as the opening of the purse.

Find the 8 middle stitches and place stitch markers around the stitches to either side. You will be sewing the horn onto the front of the purse onto the 8 stitches between your stitch markers.

Pattern: Flowers

H/5mm crochet hook  & light pink, light purple, blue, green  & yellow yarn

(make one for each color)

Chain 15, 2 sc in 2nd ch from hook, 3 sc in each rem ch, finish off leaving a long tail. Roll up into a flower shape.

Sew the flowers onto the front of the purse below the horn.

Pattern: Button

Sew button onto the middle of the back side of the purse.

Using your G/4mm crochet hook, attach your yarn to the interior of the front of the purse (see pic) and make a chain that is long enough to wrap around the button (allow for a little stretch).

 

SC across the top of the back of the purse to help hide the horn and ear attachments.

Pattern: Strap

H/5mm crochet hook & white yarn

Row 1: Attach yarn to one side of the purse right after the seam where the two pieces were single crocheted together. Chain 5 and attach to the other side of the purse.

Row 2: Ch 2, hdc in 5 chs/sts, turn [5]

Repeat row 2 until your strap length reaches 14"/15" from the purse.

Attach strap to the other side of the purse. You want this side to look the same as the side where we started the strap so you'll attach your strap to one side, slip stitch in the hdc's and attach the last hdc to the other side of the purse (the slip stitches will help replicate the look of the chains from the beginning of the strap).

Pattern: Snout
