I found this well-knit hat at a thrift store, and I wore it for a while, but once I cut my hair short, it didn't look quite as fetching.  So I simply turned it upside down, added a vintage button closure and a brown ribbon decoration, and then it became one of my favoritest clutches ever.  The knit job is amazingly sturdy, the shape is perfect for a wallet and a book and a few things, and I've gotten a lot of compliments on it in the past.  What do you think?

As I'm reading the title, I'm thinking "cap turned clutch" what's this going to look like?  Well, it looks pretty amazing.  Love the shape of the clutch and the button closure.  Great job.

Thats such a great idea!  It looks crocheted though, not knit.  Its hard to tell.  Did you have to block it to get it to lay flat?

thanks, all!  i'm glad you like it, and it's definitely something easy to find at the thrift store and easy to do - i'm all about sprucing up lonely vintage scores Smiley

yeah, i'm not a knitter or a crocheter, so you could very well be right!  it looks flat because I have a book in it, but it's really not too bulky, and as soon as you put something in it, it shapes around it nicely...

Super Cool Modification. I love the simple but great mods.

Don't forget to look in your local thrift stores for your crafting supplies. Please check out my national directory of thrift stores at www.TheThriftShopper.Com for your shopping convenience.

Thank you Smiley  And I agree - Sometimes old and discarded things just need one extra little touch to breathe new life into them...And it makes it easier on me Wink
