Lime Coin Purse

Crochet, cotton and citrus – the three C’s and a match made in heaven. As the days are getting warmer, what better way to get ready for summer than to crochet something with cotton? And lime is a perfect summer fruit to squeeze over a salad or slip into a favourite drink. Combined they inspired this cute cotton purse that is just the right size to hold a couple of coins to take out on a hike or for a trip to the ice cream van.
