Clutch, that is!
The Necessary Clutch!!
Another great pattern by Janelle @ Emmaline Bags.
I made the clutch to match the Boyd St. Bowling Bag.....
I use the same yarn dyed linen in black, and my Walmart find-the cotton duck poppies!
I must admit, I found this much more difficult than the bag!
Probably because of the precise sewing required and the really thick seams.
I did have to re-do the outer flap as it was too small. A quarter inch seam allowance is really important, and tough for me to do around curves!
However, while far from perfect, it was fun to do, and I am so happy with it!
Once again, Janelle has fabulous instructions and photos.
I found the photos especially helpful when sewing the side flaps to the zippered pocket!
It's really roomy, and has lots of card slots, as well as the zippered pocket and a centre storage space.
hmmm........not sure what I was on when I picked these fabrics!!!
I really love the turn clasp on it as well.
My heart was in my throat as I was cutting out the hole for the clasp, but it was pretty easy to do.
So now I just need to move all my stuff out of my old wallet, and fill up my shiny new one!
Yay for finishes!!
