While waiting for my daughter yesterday I took my crocheting with me. Using some Lily Sugar and Cream I began a little clutch. There was a photo on Pinterest of a yellow bag I liked but I created my own version.
Last night while sitting around watching folks play darts I nearly finished it. This morning I figured out how I wanted to make the lining.
The little clutch bag is finished off with a frilly fold over top flap, bows tied into the open areas of the stitch, a double strand of chain stitches for the wristlet, and a zippered lining with a pocket for a card or cash.
The main skein is variegated intermingled with a solid. I do enjoy working with this yarn, works up well and being a natural fiber is always a plus.
I think tomorrow I will add another photo to show the actual size in a person’s hand, it’s really a nice size.
Here is a view of me holding the purse:
I like the size. Large enough to hold the necessities and yet small enough to carry around without being a burden.
