 Elegant Velvet Clutch
With the holidays approaching, I wanted a cute little clutch to take with me to all of the upcoming festivities! So, I grabbed some timeless Touch Me yarn (celebrating its 20th anniversary this year!) from Muench in a gorgeous chocolate color, a lovely complimentary print to line it with (Amy Butler is my personal fave!), a charming button, and a magnetic closure to keep all of my items safely inside. This clutch is a fun and classic addition to your holiday party wardrobe, and also makes a great gift! This would be gorgeous done in cream for a bridal gift or as a gift to your wedding party! Either way, the soft and shimmery velvet yarn paired with gorgeous fabric makes for an elegant combo!
