Boho Sunrise Crochet Purse... Instructions

I was inspired by some cute bags other artist's have been crocheting...and decided to make my own version.  So this sweet little bag is being called Boho Sunshine.  It is about 9 1/2 inches wide and about 8-9 inches long.  Even beginners will enjoy this simple pattern.  Please use your imagination and mix and match colors.  My daughter wants one in a coral and turquoise color.  Send me pics of your creation and I will post for all to see.  Here are the directions and some pictures.  Enjoy your day!
