gathered clutch by Anna at Noodlehead in so many posts lately. It's a completely incredible and beautiful bag (which I've made several times, here and here) and I hopped on the bandwagon again because a good friend sadly misplaced the one I made for her. When she said it was lost, I interrupted her sentence to offer to make a new one because they are that much fun (and quick, and easy, and cute...). My friend has been doing "textile art", using beautiful fabrics to create abstract wall art, so I borrowed her aesthetic as inspiration for this one. Instead of the band described in the original pattern, I used an upholstery-weight woven fabric, and frayed the edges. I applied it with the reverse side of the fabric outward, so you can see the contrast better.
Gorgeous! Love the two toned woven band - great idea!ReplyDelete
Thank you! The frayed edge wasn't very apparent from the right side, and when I flipped it over, I was pleased to see the two tones went well with the main fabric! Yay for pleasant surprises :)Delete
I love sewing clutches, and this one is gorgeous!ReplyDelete
They are such fun and quick projects--I love them too!Delete
By the way, I am SUCH a huge fan of your fabric designs! They are simply beautiful. Love, love, love the boy meets backyard critters in Backyard Baby, and your florals are gorgeous. Wow!
