"The Herringbone Crochet Clutch might just be one of my all-time favorite crochet makes. Just a few weeks ago I was going out on a date night and didn’t want to take my purse. I just wanted something simple and small, but still, be able to be hands-free if needed. Well, I took my purse and it was a huge mistake. I learned that most sporting events will not allow anything bigger than a small clutch. My husband was so kind and walked my purse all the way back to the car. I grabbed my cell phone, wallet, and keys and ended up carrying them the rest of the night. It was really not fun when I added carrying food to my seat. So I learned my lesson and vowed to purchase something for next time. But why purchase one when I can customize and crochet my own! I am addicted to this pattern and have already whipped up three. I love having color choices, don’t you?"
