I recently make my Lovely Gathered Clutch with Suede Trim and just love it.
The fabric on the left is from Cotton + Steel - Tokyo Train ride.
The suede I have had in my stash for ages. It is leftover from my Fashion Design Days when I was designing suede jackets : )
I thought it would be fun to make a clutch entirely in Suede!
I changed the gathers to pleats and I will share the "how to" in another post : )
Through trial and error, I have come up with some tips and tricks that make it possible to have professional results sewing Suede and Leather on your home machine.
Look for a post where I share my tips for sewing on Suede and Leather.
I also could not resist starting another clutch in my new favorite print from Melody Miller's "Playful Line" for Cotton + Steel Fabrics. It is a wonderful collage print and I'm looking forward to making more purses with it!
The pink border fabric is also from Cotton + Steel.
This is such a fun pattern and easy to sew up!
It is so nice to sew with "Springy" fabrics in the middle of Winter! I hope to finish it before I have to pick up the kids this afternoon : )
(It did not happen - maybe tonight!)
