Crocheted Jingle Bells Tablet Clutch

Yes, I know that summer’s barely over and here I am talking about jingle bells! But I felt like working on something quick and easy and I thought I’d make something fun to use during the here-before-you-know-it Christmas season.

bag_clutch jingle bells1I just used a basic ripple pattern, alternating red and white yarn. Instead of using buttons, I sewed on little jingle bells and made crocheted loops to fasten over them.

Très festive, oui?

Here’s the pattern I used, along with a 5.5 mm hook, one ball each of red worsted weight and white worsted weight yarns.

Using red yarn, chain 28 (or whatever the width of your tablet)

Row 1: 2 single crochet (sc) in second chain from hook; *sc in each of the next 7 chains (ch); skip 1 ch; sc in each of the next 7 ch; 3 sc in next ch; repeat from * across to the end. In the last ch, work 2 sc.

Row 2: Ch 1; 2 sc in first st; *sc in each of next 7 sts; skip 2 sc; sc in each of next 7 sts; 3 sc in next st; repeat from * across to the end. In the last st, work 2 sc.

Repeat Row 2, changing colours after every 3 rows.

bag_clutch jingle bells2Once you have a block that’s large enough to fold and contain your tablet, sc right around all edges to finish it neatly. Then fold it into a clutch shape, and on wrong side, stitch together side seams. Sew 3 little jingle bells in place as shown in photo, then use sc to make 3 loops (see photo for placement) for fastening over bells.

I’m never certain that my instructions are clear enough, so as back up, here’s a great free pattern for a crochet clutch in the same ripple pattern at a wonderful crochet site called Fiber Flux; here’s the link: http://www.fiberfluxblog.com/2014/01/free-crochet-patterngraphic-chevron.html
