Granny Square Roses


These are the second to the last crochet batch  from last month during my May crochet marathon.
Each granny square measure a little over 2 inches squares.   I have seen some lovely crochet purses and I was thinking of turning these into a purses. 

 I will need at least 20 more squares to make the purse that I like.  Crocheting the squares were not hard for me.  The thought of sewing the inside of the purse slowed me down since I barely know how to sew.  But I really needed a new purse so I will think of something....

I combined a few granny squares that I saw on the web to make these granny squares.
I saw the roses here but I changed the center because  I don't like those holes in the center.

Then the next two rounds after the center rose was from here.

Thanks for looking.  Have a lovely weekend and stay cool!  It is HOT, HOT, HOT in the Delaware Valley.
