Purse Project

This project is for my friend Kelly's birthday...I only was about three weeks late getting it to her, sorry! She received it in the mail yesterday so I'm safe posting photos and not ruining the surprise. It was my first time making this pattern and I LOVE the over-sized clutch so if you have any upcoming events, my friends, you just may be getting one of these as a gift :) I HEART giving homemade, personal gifts!



Contrasting lining:


Wood button detail:




The pattern wasn't the easiest to put together due to gathering on both sides, yuck, and having to hand sew in the lining, awkward but I'm happy with the finished result. Happy Birthday Kelly :)

Sonya,
This is Alison's mom. She showed me your beautiful work. I want to make one now. Can you tell me what pattern you used?
Alison told me all about the nice things that you have made. I have 3 daughters and none of them wanted to learn how to sew. I am glad that there are some young women that still do!!!
