I made myself a clutch

Posted by   + Show Post

I think it came out great! I walked up the road to the bar the other night to meet my mom for a beer and I didn't want to bring my whole big purse, but I had nothing little to use, so I had to change into something with pockets which made me mad lol. I decided I wasn't going to have that problem again, so I made something!

The inside:

The snap is a little off center and the flap was an embroidery experiment, but overall, I'm happy with it, and that's what matters!

Thanks! I took it to the beach, it helped keep the bulk down too.

It's a rectangle of flannel, interfacing, and cotton. I unly used the interfacing for the embroidery, but it does seem to stabilize it as well, I would use it even without embroidering anything. I added the hand strap before sewing right sides together. Right in between the outer fabrics. Super easy.
