free pattern: not your granny’s granny square clutch!

not your granny's granny square clutch

The clutch I made is complete and I’ve written down the pattern and typed it all up for anyone who’s interested (for free, of course)!

It utilizes the flower stitch sampler granny square I made recently (4 of them, stitched together in a special way) and pairs them with a fabric lining and a 7″ zipper.  A sewing machine is nice but isn’t absolutely required.  The clutch holds a checkbook or an iPhone 6 in a case.

finally, it’s here!

The craft bag I ordered ages ago (or what seems like ages) finally arrived from the UK today, squished in my mailbox.  I was so excited to see it that I uttered a high pitched squeal as I pulled it out.  I must say, Cath Kidston things sure do come in pretty packaging!  Look at this cheery parcel close-up!

It’s so cute, and due to the expensive nature of CK products, I feel like I should frame a piece of this bag because I’ll probably not get anything else from them for a long while.  I must admit I had doubts about spending so much on a craft bag, and oftentimes I regret expensive purchases soon after I buy them.  Not this though.  I am so in love with this bag — I’m glad I saved up a little extra for it!  I’ve been eyeing it for so long…  So here is my treasure:

It is absolutely perfect.  And when I guessed on Cath Kidston colors for my cushion, I was pretty close, huh?

Sorry this post doesn’t have any new crochet projects or anything, I was just so excited about the bag I had to share with you!  I can’t wait to start carrying it around instead of the crinkly plastic bag I had been using before!  Having this bag makes me want to start new projects right away so that I can use it asap.  In fact, my boyfriend has requested another cushion in the same colors as the one above, so hopefully you’ll see the beginnings of that soon.
