Purple Passion Envelope Clutch

I heard that SeeKateSew was hosting a sew-along and I decided to jump in.  She provided a free pattern for an envelope style clutch and walked you through the construction process from start to finish.  It didn’t dawn on me that I needed to have my clutch done like yesterday.  I like tackling little projects like this since it’s more experience/learning under my belt and I come away with cute items.

I decided to upcycle a couple of items for this project.  A good ole faithful curtain remnant and a tunic style shirt.

Pretty easy sew.  I still managed to get some crooked seams in there.  If I attempt this again, I will definitely need to find a way to make the clutch more stiff.  Heavier fabric or interfacing.  This particular fabric is a little too flimsy for me even with heavyweight interfacing.

I really like the texture of the stitched flower.  Clutch is nice, shiny and elegant looking.  Not to mention this project was $Free.99.

Uploading this to the flickr group just in case you want to see what other ladies have done with the pattern.

  1. I love the texture and how you placed the flower on the clutch. Of course, the recycling aspect is rollin’ my socks up and down, too. 🙂 I think the idea of a sew along is fun, too. Maybe we should do that for our next project…..
    Have a great week!

    1. HA!!!! Rolling your socks up and down? That is the best! Sew alongs are so fun Beth. I like them because they give me a deadline which is good. I can have all of these great ideas, but be as content as I wanna be with all that goodness. Lol. And it’s fun knowing that other people are working on the same project. You have a great week too Beth!

  2. That is so pretty! I may be making a dress for an event that we have next month and with the right fabric, this could be the perfect accompaniment. If it’s too flimsy for an actual clutch, you could always reinforce the closure and use it for a makeup case. 😉

Go ahead and leave a drop!
