If you ever ask my good friend, Lis (simpleartsplanet.com) what presents to get me, she will most probably suggest bags! Yes, I love bags; big, medium, small, any size, any makes, you name it and I will have a use for it. My husband even suggested I should make bags instead of jewellery! Having said that, I don't really own many bags (seriously, I don't!).
Anyway, after 4 years of waiting, I bought my second sewing machine recently. I used to make small card /cheque book holders to sell at the Farmers Market in US and had fun sewing them. This time round, I am more ambitious and want to make bigger bags. I scouted through Etsy and came across a talented seller selling patterns.
Here is my finished clutch, using pattern from sewingwithme3. I modified the specifications a little and added my own touch of beads! I bead embroidered on the flower print and added a beaded ring. The finished clutch is very roomy and can hold my long wallet, phone, keys, etc.
With the success of this clutch, I bought more designer fabrics to embark on more clutches and other projects!
