I love how this clutch photographs! But to be honest it's so flimsy. I can't see really using it as a clutch. I could put crochet supplies in it on the go, I think it will make great use for that. I wanted to sell this in my shop but like I said it's a little flimsy and I haven't mastered the pattern yet. I wanted to share because I know how much people are lovin' these colors in a Chevron pattern.
