Little Beaded Purse / Clutch

Little Beaded Purse / Clutch
Degree of Difficulty: Advance Beginner

I designed this purse for a Christmas Party. I was wearing a little black dress with ruby red necklace. I wanted to design a purse that would match my outfit. The handle of the purse is handbeaded by me and the handle can be removed and carry this little beauty as a clutch.

MC Worsted Weight yarn – 150 yards
CC Worsted Weight yarn – 80 yards
CC2 Novelty yarns – choose one that is shiny and matches the CC color – 50 yards
