Crochet Clutch

I am so excited to share with you my very own crochet pattern! It is very simple for those of you who are beginning crocheters or a good first project for those of you who want to learn how to crochet.

I present to you, the Crochet Clutch! 

It closes with two buttons on the front and the back is embellished with a flower appliqué. It is the perfect size to hold credit cards, coupons, mints, make-up, pocket tissues, and much more! A great accessory for your diaper bag or purse.

And because I like you guys so much, I am giving you the pattern for free!

Tapestry needle


Finished Size: 6.5 x 3.5 inches


Gauge: 14 stitches = 4 in.


Abbreviations:

Instructions:
Chain 20 Stitches.

Finishing:
Fold so you are leaving a 2.5 inch flap on top. Sc side seams together, fasten off, weave in ends.
Turn inside out and sew buttons on front of pouch so they match up to the button holes.

      I am in the same boat! Not able to carry a purse anymore, so this is a great solution for my credit cards, license and other must have items for my diaper bag. I am going to link up right now! Thanks for the invite!!

    I was looking for easy projects to make to sell for Christmas and to give as gifts this is perfect thanks for sharing I will let you know how it comes out.

    I would like to know how to print ONLY the crochet pattern. Every time I try to print one, I wind up with all the comments too. This usually wastes about 2 – 3 extra sheets of paper.

    Muriel, You can use the mouse to highlight only the instructions, then in the print menu, under PRINT RANGE choose "selection" and it will print only the words you have highlighted.

    I like the idea of this pattern and will try it. I don't carry a purse normally but when I do go out with a bag and no pockets it would be nice to keep my ID, cash and things in. I was thinking it would be neat to sew a button on the back and make crochet flowers with a hole in the center ( don't use the magic ring) and that way you could make several different fashionable flowers and attach them onto the button and change them out at will.

    I made something similar for my husband. He is in a nursing home and kept losing his cell phone. I made a little pouch, put a string on it and he wears it around his neck. I've since made several for people at the home.

    Love this, I am fairly new to crocheting and I decided to make this. Your directions were so simple and the clutch is totally cute. I also taught a client at my work how to make one. we made a small change to it because we had no buttons. just made a loop and flower to close it instead.
