Carry a bouquet of flowers with you every day when you make yourself a clutch/makeup bag from the Tulips collection! The pattern uses easy stitches and basic techniques to create this beautiful floral design that every woman will love!
The finished product measures approximately 5″ x 8″, making it small enough to tuck inside a larger bag, but it’s still big enough to put your phone, keys and wallet inside and carry as a purse when you want to travel light. The size makes it a great makeup bag!
Basic stitches make this an easy project to crochet, with advanced techniques demonstrated in pictures in the pattern. And as always I will offer assistance with any of my patterns if needed.
This brand of nylon yarn is sturdy, but with a nice sheen that gives it a feminine look. It comes in 83 amazing colors so you can make this purse to match any outfit. They make great gifts too. Family and friends will love getting a useful and beautiful gift like this. Trust me, I know! I can hardly keep up with their requests.
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. I am also working on a video teaching you how to make a wrist strap to coordinate with your clutch, so check the Tips page for these kinds of handy tutorials!
