Gathered Clutch

Sewing:

How sweet is this?

In my mind there are just some things you can never have too many of. I think these clutches fall firmly into this list!

They are so versatile. I need one to organise all my make-up in my hand bag, one to keep control of all my sewing goodies when I go to sewing groups, one to carry my jewellery when I'm travelling, one to use as my little going out bag and the list goes on....

Like most of my sewing projects, I have a massive wish list of things I want to make. I've had this pattern for a while now and I finally found a bit of free time this afternoon to have a try. 


Inside clutch
I have used a cute little Joel Dewberry in Opal from the Heirloom collection for the band across the middle, Orange Wildflower Field, Far Far Away III, by Heather Ross for the gathered outer fabric and Spotty Nagative (yes nagative) in navy from Sugar and Spice Textiles.

This pattern is really well written, easy to understand (it even helped my get my head around inserting a zipper!) and is broken down into perfect little baby steps for me (with a great photo for each step). 

So I did what I always do when I find something I can make - I make more. :)

I just love these so much I'm putting these away for Christmas presents - did you realise Christmas is only 9 weeks away


Gosh - I really must get organised!!!
