Clutch Purse

A simple to make clutch purse that is functional, it’s made in an easy stitch, so is ideal if you are a beginner crocheter.

There is only a small amount of sewing involved, you can crochet it up very quickly (I made it in a morning), make the main part of the purse in one solid color and the flap in a different color to match your outfit.

It will add a touch of glamour and fun. Crochet for summer evenings to carry your necessities in.
