Sweet Georgia Clutch Free Crochet Pattern

In today’s post I wanted to share with you my Sweet Georgia Clutch Free crochet pattern.  I had some really great yarn left over from a testing I took part in a couple of years ago for Knotions Magazine.  I didn’t want to waste this gorgeous yarn so I held on to it for awhile!  Do you hang on to your scraps of yarn for 2 years or more??
