Something I made a week ago...

Japanese cotton or linen fabric lining

Pinch clasp from Daiso

Chain & clasp


Grey cotton/linen blend thread (DMC Senso)

My own design for a simple clutch purse. Its roomy but not too large. The thread and fabric lining are both lovely so I wanted to show them off to best advantage. Its too nice to put dirty old money in though, its better as a makeup or evening purse. I'm very happy with how it turned out. I'd like to make a larger one as a clutch bag when I find a large enough clasp. Its nice to hold because of the texture of the linen/cotton crochet and the silky smooth cotton/linen (the lining fabric was a sample from a Japanese magazine, so I don't know what it is!). I keep wanting to take it with me everywhere. I really love this grey too, it makes me excessively happy just gazing at this colour.


  1. very nice. I agree with the grey. It's a cheery grey, even though it's a grey.

  2. Thankyou! A happy grey indeed :)

  3. Wow, that's gorgeous, I love the colors! Regarding your question: I don't have my own Ravelry account, I've been using my friend's. Seems kind of silly, I know. I did find a super cute hat that I might try knitting for the baby.

  4. I found a really cute cotton singlet for babies in a recent magazine:
