I’ve actually had this Bobble Clutch crocheted for about six months now, waiting to be lined. Shocking, I know, but my fear of fabric and thread is hard to overcome. With the “All About Hearts” swap for Swap Swap Gals I decided to make a few purse items in order to force myself to sew. It worked out and I got everything finished in time, but I’m still not a sewing convert.
Anyway, I finally got this darn purse lined and zippered. The zipper is sewn in a little wobbly, but it zips like a champ. I learned a very important lesson – do not sew the lining too close to the zipper! I had to sew the fabric twice since the first time the zipper kept catching the hem.
I’m not 100% positive, but I’ll guess this purse is made of Red Heart Super Saver in Gemstone. I like to roll my skeins of yarn into balls and rarely keep the wrapper. I figure the internet can always help me with future identification. This is easy when I remember what brand, but I’ve had the yarn picked out for my grandma for a long time. She loves these jewel tones, especially the turquoise, and I was just waiting for a one-skein pattern to catch my eye.
The Bobble Clutch was the perfect project I was hoping for. The pattern is from One Skein: 30 Quick Projects to Knit or Crochet. (I’m sure you’ve all heard of it.) Easy pattern to memorize, and the bobbles make any yarn look wonderfully textured.
Happy St. Patty’s Day everybody!
