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.
