This clutch bag is 23cm x 13cm (9” x 5.1”)


Yarn: light weight (3) yarn suitable for amigurumi and a size 3 mm crochet hook in:

  • Light pink (about 150 yards) (about 135m)
  • Black (between 150 and 165 yards) (between 135m and 150m)

Lining fabric: 40x40cm (15×15”) (I used cotton fabric but satin would be nice too)

Gauge: 11sc stitches x 11 rows = 5cm x 5cm (2” x 2”)

If you don’t know how to measure this, then cut a 5x5cm (2×2”) square
out of cardboard and place it on your test piece (see picture). The
amount of stitches and rows in the square should be as mentioned
above. If you have a different amount of stitches and rows, then change
the yarn or change the crochet hook or leave it as it is but then the
clutch bag will be slightly different in size


(click on the stitch names to go to a tutorial for those stitches. Each tutorial is with a video and pictures)

Row examples:

*2sc, inc, 2sc* repeat till end = 2sc, inc, 2sc, 2sc, inc, 2sc, 2sc, inc, 2sc, ..

*3sc, inc* repeat till end = 3sc, inc, 3sc, inc, 3sc, inc, ..

The color of yarn you are to use for your row, is mentioned at the end of the row. When nothing is mentioned, use the same color as the previous row.

    from the top (picture 3)
  • Insert lining, pin in place and sew the lining to the inside of the clutch with sewing
    thread and needle (see pictures below)

Detailed explanation of row 15 of part 2 of the clutch:
Step 1: first do the following 5 times: 1dc, ch1, skip the next stitch. AFTER you have done
that 5 times, make 1dc, 1ch and skip 1 stitch.
