Crochet Clutch Purse
I made this purse for myself for when have a special night out! I hope you like it! I know I love to put my compact and credit cards in a little clutch purse when I have a night out, so this is perfect!

sl st=slip stitch
Dimensions: 7″ in length X 4″ height
Make it bigger with more sc or bigger hook or smaller with smaller hook or less stitches, but I tried to create a certain amount of sc so the shell top fits in the stitches properly.
I used Red Heart Love Dark Pink Yarn
I hook, Yarn needle

Rows 32-35: **Ch 3(counts as a dc), dc in the next dc, work 2 dc in the middle of the next previous 2 dc, *work 2dc, ch 1, 2dc in the next ch 1 space, *4 times, work 2 dc in the middle of the next previous 2 dc, dc in the last two dc, Turn **Repeat this 4 times.
Then take the sc section and fold it up to the shell part but stop at the shell part of the pattern (the shell will be the flap of the clutch), sew both sc sides together with a sl st on both sides. After I sewed the sides, I turned it inside out, it looks better. Then the shell part will over lap the sc section to create the top of the clutch purse.
