Fiesta Fringe Clutch

Fiesta Fringe ClutchThe Fiesta Fringe Clutch will be my go to clutch for the summer. It is so fun to make and adds that pop of color to any outfit. This design was inspired by another crochet bag that my sweet mom wanted from Anthropologie. The problem was, it was just a little too expensive. I decided to take matters into my own hands and crochet my own version. It’s a quick pattern with fun options to help customize your bag so grab your hook, and let’s get crocheting!

**Repeat the instructions twice to create two separate pieces and be sure to leave a 30 inch tail. This tail will be used to close the bag by sewing down the sides, along the bottom, and up the other side. When sewing the bag, insert the needle from the front then push through to the back then bring the needle back to the front and push through to the back. This method is more secure than pushing through the front then pushing from the back to the front. You may also slit stitch the sides closed.

Feel free to add snaps to keep the bag closed.

Turn the bag right side out.
