  1. I found your little clutch in the column of newly added items this afternoon. I'm going to take it to the yarn shop and ask for something that would make it an evening clutch. Nice little goodie!!

  2. I love this clutch! Haven't made it yet but it will be perfect for the opera! Thanks for sharing it!
