Hello Loves! Today’s post is a tutorial on how I like to make the bases for purses, shoes, booties, or anything oval shaped! I call this crochet tutorial a crochet around technique. Hope you love!

When I use It
I love using this for a base of a purse or backpack that I make. Especially if I am making an envelope shape. It works well when you want to make your piece a little wider and allows me to make a more realistic size purse, rather than just a bucket bag (which I love, by the way!).
I have also used this method for a few different projects, such as shoes, baby booties and something you will see in a few days – so stay tuned!
