If you’ve ever been a bridemaid, you know the difficult situation you can be put in when the time comes for the dress fitting. “You can wear it again and again!” You’ve heard that phrase. I know you have. What do you do when you’re not in love with what the bride picked? What do you do if you’re the bride?!
I’m a fan of geometric patterns. I’m also a fan of projects that take less than 20 minutes. I’ve been working on gifts for bridesmaids that can be easily tweaked to fit someone’s personal style. American Bridal gave me these clutches to use as bridesmaid gifts. Now, on their own, they’re okay! I love grey. It’s one of the main colors in my wardrobe. I decided to add a little yarn to give these clutches a personal feel. You can add any shape. I chose a geometric pattern because you can just stitch in any direction and it will look good. So easy.
To make your own Geometric Clutch you’ll need:
- a simple fabric clutch (mine from here)
- mint and coral yarn
- darning needle
Create a knot and tie the yarn under the flap. Bring through the top of the flap and start stitching in different directions. After you’ve created the shape you wanted, make sure all of the yarn is connected. Bring back down through the flap and tie one more knot. That’s it! I didn’t use a pattern. I just stitched as I went and played around with different directions. If you’re not confident in your geometric skills, print out a shape and trace it on to the top of the flap. Easy as pie. You can create these to match any color scheme for any wedding or party. The best part? You don’t have to shorten it and wear it again…
