Welcome to this Friday’s VTNS Fan Freebie!

Here’s a fast and easy crocheted Beanie Hat pattern to keep your little one’s head warm. Baby yarn and a No. 2 crochet hook is used. No size is given, but it’s from a Baby Book of patterns so it’s probably for an infant or toddler. Looks like it’s mostly worked in a single crochet stitch.

Welcome to this Friday’s VTNS Fan Freebie!

Today’s freebie is a hand crocheted clutch purse decorated with pearls and sea shells. This clutch bag is called Treasure Trove and is described as a beautiful clutch bag for the very dressiest occasions. Made of Dritz Radiant Straw, enhanced by Dritz Pearls and Sea Shells.

The pattern is from a Dritz instruction book of Hand Crochet Fashions copyright 1954. Dritz is still in business making many different items for sewing and crafts. I wasn’t able to find the pearls or sea shells required for this pattern, but there’s no shortage of great substitutes.  This search shows a variety of pearls and here is a great selection of sea shells.

You could substitute the sequins for the sea shells and make a dressy clutch to match your outfit for a New Year’s Eve party. The types of sequins you could use are endless.

 

I couldn’t find the Dritz Radiant Straw called for in this vintage pattern, but this purple Berwick Wraphia Pearlized Rayon Craft Ribbon is gorgeous and comes in different colors.

 

This is the Pearlized Rayon Craft Ribbon and with these sequins added to embellish the purse, you’d have quite a beautiful crocheted clutch.

 


Lame is used to string the pearls and shells. This product from BEADNOVA Elastic Stretch Polyester String Cord in Clear White looks like it’d do the trick.

I wasn’t successful in finding a lining for the clutch, but this sewing tutorial from Make Something may be helpful. It has information on making a lined clutch with the sewing pattern included.

This crochet pattern is from a 1946 American Thread Company Star Book 45 filled with tried and true crochet favorites. The yarn used, Dawn Knitting Worsted is discontinued.

It was a 100% wool yarn, but it’s not necessary to use that for your afghan. You can substitute any worsted yarn, usually a 4 or medium weight.

The afghan is made up of individual motifs sewn together. You’ll need 70 to make a 42 x 63 inch size.
