I am definitely a girl that likes to window shop. I am a bit of cheapskate, but I like to look at pretty things and fill an imaginary shopping cart with all the stuff I would like to not spend money on but have (I never claimed I wasn’t weird). Anyway, when I saw this pretty fringy clutch at Anthropolgie, I decided to make myself one instead! This Crochet Fringe Clutch was way easier than I thought, and turned out so very cute!
I made mine with super bulky wool/acrylic blend yarn, but T-shirt yarn would be perfect for this bag. I might have to make up another (bummer 😉 ).

Construction: Fold the piece in half, lining up the two handles. Sc down the side, sewing the two sides together. Break yarn. Join on other side and sc down.
To make the fringe, cut about 30 lengths of yarn (approx. 7 1/2″ long). Attach one piece of fringe to each sc down each side. Fold the yarn in half and pull it through the stitch. Then, pull both ends through the loop at the end. Pull tight.
Isn’t this so cute? I seriously love quick project with instant gratification.
