After altering a dress to make a top and a scarf, I decided to make a clutch. Not only I still have plenty of this pink-with-off-white-embroidered-flowers fabric, but I love looking at it. I did not have any matching ribbon or cord. I looked at my crochet threads and found the perfect off-white thread. I made a chain of chain stitches, long enough to easily pass my hand through when it is folded in two. I then crocheted scallops (made of three double crochets) on each side of the chain.As for the top and the scarf, I added small white beads that I sew in groups of three. What you see on top of the clutch is a corner of the scarf. (Unfortunately, we do not see them clearly on the picture. Shiny beads on slightly shiny polyester is not easy to photograph.)To make this clutch, I followed my own tutorial, that I have written last year, after making a white clutch. The printable tutorial can be found on my web site. I would not use the clutch with the top itself but with the scarf. I think those two accessories would look fabulous with black, grey or jeans. With what color would you use it?
