I was planning to make a felted clutch, after seeing all the lovely felted things around.

Unfortunately I knitted the main piece only to learn that I should have used pure wool instead of synthetic yarn for the felting to work.

It's still very cute, even if it can't be felted.  Nice job on the lining!

Very cute.  I love the lining and button...  did you wire the handle?  I love how it dips back up on the sides!   Cheesy

Yes I passed jewelry wire on either side to see what it would look like.
I forgot to mention that the handle was crocheted and I still need to put some sort of snap in.

Looks great!! You could always get one of those magnetic snaps for totes and purses. But, You'd probably have to undo a few inches of the lining for that to work.

I like to do personal swaps now and again.

I knit, crochet, and make stitch markers.

Just pm me if you wanna swap. Smiley
