Here is another new pattern for you. The Diamante Clutch.
I originally designed it to go with the Glamour Girl Ensemble, but I had to instead make it a pattern by itself. The clutch is made out of Tilli Tomas Mogul, a beaded feltable wool (you can use almost any feltable wool to substitute). A single crochet trim around the top edge and a zippered closer finishes it nicely. It holds just the essentials with style and class.
I did a lot of experimenting when making this clutch. I tried a lot of different sts at the top edge to finish it off but it seemed that a crochet trim was what it was wanting. In the end, after a lot of failed attempts, I achieved the look I was going for. I’m actually quite happy with it. It’s one of my easiest patterns and it looks really great with a cocktail dress, evening gown, or the perfect little black dress. It’s such a simple pattern that telling you the construction and how it’s made would defeat the purpose of selling it: )
And of course it’s available for download on my website (all my downloads are Ravelry downloads – but you don’t have to be a Ravelry member to buy).
