Thirty-five years ago, an extremely patient, saint-of-a-woman taught me and ten or so other 8-year-old girls to crochet for our Bible School craft project. Somehow, that teacher retained her sanity and I retained a love for yarn. I took to the hook and have been crocheting ever since, making everything from doilies, to baby clothes, sweaters and footies, hats and scarves. After 20 years, I abandoned patterns and started experimenting with my own designs.
I'm a girly-girl in the extreme. I love pretty colors, soft textures, and anything that sparkles. So my idea of a good crochet project is a fun, feminine, flirty piece that feeds the fashionista in me!

This crocheted bag is constructed from a nylon cord that gives off a soft sheen. Combine this with the mini-shell stitch in this pattern and 83 colors to choose from, and you have one gorgeous little bag. It's so pretty you won't want to hide it away in your purse!
Use it as a make-up bag, or for storing those smaller items that roam around the interior of your purse like keys, chapstick, and gum. It's also large enough to stow a wallet and cell phone along with a few basics, so you can carry it as a clutch if you want to travel light.
Each skein will yield two clutches, so make one for you and give one away. Your sisters and girlfriends will love getting these for birthdays or Christmas.
