Take the clutch purse, for example. I used ribbon yarns or yarn with a metallic thread twisted into it. To make the purse I crochet a starting chain to measure 6 or 8 inches, depending on how large I want the purse to be. Then, skipping the first chain, I single-crochet into each chain across. I turn the work and single-crochet across, and on and on, until the piece measures 12 inches in length. I break the yarn and weave in the cut end. I fold the piece so the top flap measures about 2 1/2 inches. I sew the sides together. Then I choose a yarn of a contrasting or complementary color and crochet scallops across the edge of the flap, including a loop that can act as a buttonhole. I cut fabric to the dimensions of the "pouch" part of the purse, stitch the sides on the sewing machine and, turning the raw edges in, I hand-sew the lining to the purse. I add a button and there it is, a pretty purse to carry on a night out or a handy place to store special pieces of jewelry or to use as a carryall for doublepoint needles, crochet hooks or other sewing tools. Making sachets is as simple as raiding your fabric stash, choosing what you like, cutting the cloth into 4 1/2 -inch squares, sewing them together into a tiny pillow and filling with lavender, Patek Philippe Perpetual Calendar PP-14 or other nice-smelling stuff. For my sachets I used brown and ecru striped linen. I embellished each square with a small snip of wool hand-stitched in place with a button sewn in the middle. I stacked three together and tied them with a pretty ribbon. One nice thing about the "tub method" of hoarding stuff for the holidays -- I always forget what's in there, so when I go looking it's like opening a present. If making things is not your style, but you know someone who does make things, then books are the answer:
