Item details

This listing is for a CROCHET PATTERN only, not a completed item. You will receive a digital download with instructions on how to crochet the item yourself.

If you would rather purchase a completed purse, check out my Ready-Made Purse listings! I have many sizes, colors and patterns available.

The classic shell pattern has new life and flair when made in fun colors with this different and interesting nylon cord. Shells are by design, soft and feminine, and in this pattern they create a scalloped edge across the top that I just love.

The clutch is the perfect size to use as a make-up bag, pencil case, or throw it in your purse and use it as a catch all for those smaller items (chapstick, gum, eye drops, keys, etc.) so your purse stays organized and clutter free.

Each skein will make two purses so make one for you and give one to a friend! These make great gifts for moms or sisters or friends who have everything.

This item involves some sewing to install the zipper and lining. You can sew it by hand or machine, though machine will be faster. I have produced a video to walk you through the process of making a lining and setting in a zipper which is available on Youtube and my website.
