One day I was looking through a magazine that had a crochet clutch in it. It was priced at 250 dollars. I was speechless and surprised at such a price. I knew I could design and make one that looked very similar and that it would only cost me about ten dollars and 10 hours to make. The end result is the pattern below. (FYI, I bought the thread on sale so I only spent 7.50 on the clutch, and it probably only took 3 hours.) There are three main elements to the clutch, the flap, the clutch, and the button straps, all three of these can be one solid color, or you can make all three components different colors, I found both ways look great.
