Tunisian Crochet Clutch pattern inspiration
Surely you know it had to be done right. I am a lover of bags. I can’t help it. I often browse online retailers for ideas or inspiration on my designs and this Tunisian Crochet clutch bag design is a great way to share something different and put a spin on some of the textured / basket weave style bags I have seen online.
I really don’t do much Tunisian crochet but entrelac has always been something that has intrigued me, and I thought this would be a good way to introduce a beginner to the Tunisian crochet concepts, and create a unique accessory or gift. This is a take on entrelac crochet, which is a specific diamond or square, whereas in this design I have been a little flexible with the construction of the fabric.
Tunisian Crochet Clutch yarn & materials
To make my Entrelac Sort of Tunisian Crochet Clutch Bag pattern I used Paintbox Simply Aran, a 100% acrylic yarn from Lovecrafts. This is my go to acrylic. Loads of variety in colour, good price point and it holds up well to washing.
I used Paper White, Washed Teal and Rich Teal to make my small Entrelac Sort Of Tunisian crochet handbag. For the larger sizes I used ends of blue, again in Paintbox Simply Aran, with the white as a contrast. Depending on the size of your clutch you need up to 100g of any single colour so this is a great option for a scrap buster pattern.

Entrelac Sort Of Clutch pattern info & tips
I have graded this Tunisian crochet clutch bag pattern as beginner because it uses a single stitch. It is, however, a concept that takes a minute to wrap your mind around. You will use a single stitch to create blocks in a repeating pattern that has the greatest effect when you use contrasting colours.
If you are new to Tunisian crochet, it can be tricky to see where your stitches are and I would advise that you use a lighter colour to start your handbag project, or at least practise with some until you are confident in how it works.
As this has a fairly firm / dense fabric lining is not essential, although I have lined 2 of my 3 clutches so far.
