Tulips Clutch Pattern
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!
