Although this little black lace purse is the perfect accessory for the little black dress, there’s also a free pattern for making the purse for other more casual occasions on the same page. It’s so easy to do and takes about an hour. I’ve made several with and without clasps. But I enjoy finding odd things to use when I want clasps, like buttons and decorative pins. A subscriber to my site made clutch purses for all the bridesmaids in her daughter’s wedding party. Is that the coolest idea? I’m still hoping to get her photos to post on my site.
