I am offering my Tunisian Crochet Clutch Purse Pattern here.

I used Dream Big Crochet’s Hand Dyed 100% Cotton Yarn to make my Tunisian Crochet Clutch.  I love the shades of greens and khaki browns.

This clutch has enough room for a phone, your ID and credit cards and any small must haves.  You can add more pockets and even change the strap closure to a snap on instead of the velcro.  Embroidering a small design would also be a cute add on that will add extra style and personality.

For the Tunisian Crochet Clutch:

Afghan Hook: I-5.5mm

Chain 31
