Crochet Clutch Purses

I have been crocheting purses now a while and I can tell you I do not get tired of creating these.

I like going to my local AC Moore craft store and going to this huge basket where they have some of the coolest acrylic yarn. I find yarn that you normally would not find in your regular yarn shelf.  Which is ok with me because it allows me to make a one-of-a-kind purse (hence the brown ombre you see here).

I have found that my cool buttons for my bigger purses I find online at Joann’s Fabric.
Each of these have a cotton fabric lining which I have sewn by hand.  The only thing I do use the sewing machine for is for sewing the lining to the zipper (which I do first) I sew the button to the outside of the purse before I sew the lining directly to the purse. 
All of these beautiful creations I always crochet in the same stitch (1/2 double crochet) to give it a more tight look.

All of my crocheted creations are made with care. Item comes from a non-smoking home. Hand washing is recommended and line dry preferably. 
I hope you have the time to make some of these for yourself or to give as a gift or even sell them.. Be adventurous with your creations.

Crochet Ear Warmers

You will definitely not mind being outside with these hand crochet ear warmers.  Not only will your forehead not feel the cold but you will protect your ears and still look fabulous.

These are simple and fashionable and let’s not forget adorable! I crochet these with soft acrylic yarn, and some I have with a button to fasten or you can tie it behind your head.  They do have a stretch to it so it will fit most ladies heads.  You definitely will ward off the chill with my crocheted accessories such as these ear warmers.

I like making these in a variety of colors, thickness, width and style.  You can add buttons or trimming to them.  Also, you can utilize your leftover yarn from other projects to make these.  They are machine washable and line dry preferably.

Crochet Shawls
Crochet Shawl by Yolanda's Creations
Depending on your choice of style, this self-shaping rectangle shawl can be worked thick and warm for winter or delicate and lacy for a summer evening.  I started making these when I just feel in love with the way they could be worn and how they felt wrapped around me.
I have made others in the similar style but different colors and yarn.  Most of mine will measure approximately 52Lx14W.  It definitely will and can take about 5-6 skeins of yarn.

Depending on the yarn type you to make your shawl I would say not to machine dry.  You definitely can machine wash it in cold water and line dry or if you prefer the drier put it in for a very short period.

I also would dress it up with a wooden shawl pin.  All of mine I purchased at Lion Brand Yarn.  You can get them pretty much anywhere but I liked the ones I saw here and got most of mine from LB.
You can add fringes at the ends if you want to add more character to your shawls…my next one will have those (currently my ponchos all have fringes).

These are perfect for gifts as well.  It’s simple and practical and just pretty!
