Fringe Clutch Crochet Pattern

Fringe Clutch Crochet Pattern

We all know teenagers can be hard to shop for. With so many changing interests, how could you possibly keep up? Let alone, know what to MAKE for them!

That’s where the Fringe Clutch Bag comes in. This is the perfect little present you can make for that teen or tween in your life who loves getting dressed up.

This little purse is crocheted in a rectangle with a half circle flap closing the bag. What really makes this bag modern though, is the delicate fringe detail and fun tassel attached to the edge.

While I recommend making this little clutch in white, you can choose any color that suits your tween’s taste.  
The Cascade Ultra Pima yarn is 100% silky cotton, that adds a luxurious expensive look to your projects.  And it comes in a range of colors, available on Makerdrop.com.  Consider making it in a pale pink or neutral sand.

If you want to get started, check out the kit I put together for this pattern.  Every kit includes all the yarn you need, in the white shade I love, and a digital PDF pattern.

Gift season is right around the corner, and I’m hoping this pattern takes some of the guesswork out of it for you.
