Sewing

Summertime Clutch

In one of my recent posts, I mentioned that I bought a new fabric from the remnants bin at JoAnn’s. Well, I decided what I could use it for: a summertime clutch! (I still have some leftover fabric, so I don’t know what else I’ll  make yet…)

I used the Glenda Clutch pattern from Sue Kim’s Bags, the Modern Classics. (this is the same book where I got the pattern for the beach bag I made last year).

I have a “crafty” photo album on Facebook and so I posted a picture of this there .. I have already received comments asking for some! (from my sister and one of my best friends) — so I see a bit more bag making in my future 🙂

I’m pretty pleased with the way this turned out. However, there wasn’t a guide for the seam allowance, so I went with 1/2″. I had a little trouble sewing around where the magnetic button is on the flap; probably due to both the size of the button as well as my seam allowance. I can just adjust either (or both) of those on the next iterations.

It makes me smile 🙂
