* in bloom

Posted on August 19th, 2006 by maitreya. Filed under Crochet.

This crochet clutch is the “in bloom” pattern by india romeo in the Happy Hooker. The wool brooch on it is from sparrow goods. The lining fabric is in the background. I’m pretty happy with it, and it was way easy. I love this pink acrylic yarn my sister got me. It’s been in at least 4 projects by now, I think. It actually squeaks when you crochet with it.

    Does this bag hold it’s shape if you put things in it?

    Thanks everybody! I’ve taken the bag out a couple of times now, and the body keeps it’s shape great due to the lining. The handles did stretch some, but not in an unpleasant way. I can definitely see how frequent use will stretch them out too much, but by then the yarn will probably also be fuzzy and will be tired of it anyway. So, thumbs up as an occasional small bag.
