Crochet Clutch Purse

Make your own clutch purse to match your favorite outfit with this free crochet pattern from Bernat Yarns. This purse is quick and easy to crochet and the classic design is always in style.

Important to Know Before Felting: 

Record all the measurements and changes before and after felting. You will be able to adjust the method to produce proper results.
Always test a sample. Different colored yarns may felt differently.
Colorfastness can be affected by very hot water.
Any knit fabric that has been properly felted becomes very dense and matted.

How to Felt:

  1. Using low water level, run a Hot/Cold cycle for 5 to 15 min. Add a pair of old jeans for agitation.
  2. Add 2 tablespoons of baking soda for a small load. After one cycle, check for size. Repeat if necessary.
  3. Run through the rinse and dry spin cycle.
  4. Do not use a clothes dryer.
  5. Lay felted piece onto a dry towel, away from direct heat or sunlight.
  6. Shape piece to correct measurements.
  7. If an edge ripples, baste a thread through the edge and gather in. Remove the thread after the felting is dry.

I is my understanding that you do not cut it. While it is wet you shape it and fold it. Once it dries it holds that shape.

How was the purse sewn together? What kind of thread/yarn, needle, stitches etc.? Is it possible to crochet it together before it's felted?

do you have a video for this pattern..its difficult to understand the pattern language

Thanks for your note. We have updated the pattern. =)

The pattern is really neat and am going to make it, but you did not show a diagram showing how to cut the piece after felting.
