This is a very simple (if you know how to crochet) evening bag. It works up very quickly, plus I show you an easy and simple way to line your purse (hint: with felt) as well as how to hand sew in a zipper into your purse, which is not as difficult as it seems. Check out my YouTube video tutorial for how to crochet this cute clutch!
 
Materials:
4 balls of size 10 crochet thread (held together) - or - 250 yards of light worsted weight yarn. F (3.75 mm) crochet hook. 9 inch zipper. 1 piece of 8.5" x 11" craft felt. 1 piece of plastic canvas (optional).
Stitch marker (paperclip). Yarn needle. Scissors. Flower or other embellishments (optional)
 
Instructions:
Finished size = 10" wide by 6.5" high.
With 4 strands of size 10 crochet thread held together, or 1 strand of light-worsted weight yarn, make a slipknot. Chain 42. 
Rnd 1: Skip first 3 CHs. Make 1 DC in next CH and in each across. Total = 39 DC + 1 CH-3 = 40 stitches. Pivot work. Make 40 DC on other side of chain. 
Rnds 2-13+: Working in spirals, DC in each stitch around, marking first stitch. Total = 80 DCs each round. After Rnd 3, ensure purse's width is 10". Make as many rounds as needed to achieve 6.5" high. Do not cut/bind off yet.
Zipper: Sew zipper to craft felt.
Assembly: Insert lining into purse. Insert cut & measured plastic canvas in between lining and crochet fabric. Using existing loop, sc around the top, catching both the purse and the stitches from the zipper. Cut and weave in all ends. Sew or glue on embellishments.
