Prepare for the project posts to start coming fast and furious. I have only 6.5 weeks until my birthday and six more projects to go which means I have to wrap this up quickly...
Little known fact, I collect clutches (and scarves). Someday I should do a post about all of them because I'm sort of obsessed. This is the first one I have made and I am pretty happy with how it turned out. I followed this tutorial, but made it much bigger. Mine is about 11x14 and is designed to fold to become a more manageable 11x7.5.
I picked up blue vinyl in the clearance section of Joann's and settled on pretty pink fabric for a pop on the inside and an orange zipper for the pop on the outside. I would love to experiment more with different fabrics and textures, but this was a good (simple) start. I feel like making clutches could become addicting, but I am going to wait and see how often I carry this one before I start sewing more.
And here is an awkward photo taken with my phone in the mirror of a resturant bathroom, but it helps show some scale and proves I am using it. (Remember, I followed this tutorial if you are looking to make something similar.)
That scarf in the photo is from gap and the white button up is the best fitting one I've ever found and it's from j.crew.
