I made this clutch handbag on Thursday night at my RMIT Introduction to Bag Making class. I am so happy with how it turned out. I used it today when we went to the movies (saw Dark Knight, it was pretty good) and it held my purse, tissue and phone just perfectly :)

The course is 6 lessons and we've only had three so far so we can use the rest of the lessons to make whatever we want. I'm trying to decide what I want the next one to be like but it has to be really simple and we haven't learned how to do gussets so I'm having trouble visualising what I could do. I think I'm going to have to go on a reccie in the city to look for inspiration.

Thanks Cath :) I've never tried to crochet a flower. I'll give it a go and let you know if I figure it out :)
