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.

These whimsical crocheted purses are easy to make and fun to give as gifts! The size of this purse makes it useful as a makeup bag, or it can hold a checkbook, phone, and keys and serve as a clutch if you want to travel light. Incorporate the optional key ring to make it really easy to carry.

This particular pattern utilizes a stitch that produces a three-dimensional diagonal line that gives the purse whimsical texture and movement. Made from sturdy nylon cord, they are incredibly durable and can be washed in the machine when they need to be freshened up! You can make two clutches with one spool of cord, so make one for you and one to give to a friend.

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 have also created a video teaching you how to make a wrist strap to coordinate with the clutch, so check the Tips page of for these kinds of handy tutorials!
