The "Swan Lake" clutch partyware, bridal or Christmas gift?

Crocheted clutch from fabric remnants and cotton yarn. Fully lined, with magnetic clasp and brooch. The brooch is a Selfridges from 60s or 70s.

I did not follow a pattern, but when I finished the white satin skirt (also in My Projects) I was left with loads of strips of satin. I kept them, thinking that one day I might put them at good use. I tied them together with knots and crocheted them in a rectangle. The main body of teh clutch is crocheted from flat cotton yarn.

There it is, my party clutch from … nearly nothing.
Note: crotcheting strips of satin can be really daunting. It is quite hard, and the satin tends to break easily when stretched with the crochet hook.

I call it “Swan Lake” in an inspirational moment.

Great Christmas gift!

    Thanks, “frankiesoup”. Can I just say how easy it is to make if you know what you’re doing! And the effect is great. It does feel like a swan’s feathers when you touch it. And it is only fabric remnants!
