Back in December, I made a clutch for a gift exchange the night before the gift exchange. Sheesh! Talk about procrastination. Anyway, I loved it so very much that I decided to make one (almost) just like it for myself.
I like to have a clutch to carry around because I can just slide it in the top of my diaper bag and then all my things are right there and handy, and when I don’t need the diaper bag, I don’t need to worry about transferring my things to another bag!
The main fabric and the accent band are both from Michael Miller’s Pretty Bird. I added a little detachable wrist strap.
I got this little crochet flower from the Heather Ross studio sale a year ago and it seemed just perfect for this bag! Now, I want to learn how to crochet little flowers. This clutch is one of the products I hope to have in my store, and I would love to have the crochet flower as an option because I just love the look. I happened upon a crochet hook when I was cleaning out my desk last week (can you say “random”) and my friend Laura says she learned to crochet by watching YouTube videos, so there may be hope for me.
I was careful to center the birds on the back.
The inside is lined with a print by Denyse Schmidt and has a little zippered pocket (that I sadly couldn’t include on the original gifted one because I was so short on time).
