This crocheted bag is so pretty you won’t want to hide it away in your purse! It’s constructed from a nylon cord that gives off a soft sheen. Combine this with the mini-shell stitch in this pattern and 83 colors to choose from, and you have one gorgeous little bag.
Use it as a make-up bag, or for storing those smaller items that roam around the interior of your purse like keys, chapstick, and gum. It’s also large enough to stow a wallet and cell phone along with a few basics, so you can carry it as a clutch if you want to travel light.
Each skein will yield two clutches, so make one for you and give one away. Your sisters and girlfriends will love getting these for birthdays or Christmas.
Once crocheting is complete, finishing your purses requires some sewing to add a lining and a zipper closure. You can use a machine or hand sew. If sewing isn’t in your skill set, recruit a friend or family member with seamstress skills to help. It only takes a half hour to create the lining and set the zipper. I have filmed a step-by-step instructional video to walk you through the process.
