I'm still on the 'there arent enough outrageous clutch bags in the world' train of thought so I've whipped up three more. God knows what im going to do with them all! :p
This one is very similar to one I made a while back for a friend's birthday. Its chinese silk (absolutely horrendous to work with if you dont get the interfacing attached properly - it frays everywhere!) with a black lining and magnetic clasp. Ive also added D rings on either side because there are removable shoulder/wrist straps not shown in the picture.
This one I absolutely love, the asymetric pattern i think works really well and the fabric is just outrageous. It used to be a pair of gaudy curtains in a friends house which were just going to get thrown away. Whilst I agree that its perhaps a bit TOO outrageous for curtains, the fabric was too fabulous to go to waste. In fact I dont think this photo really does justice to it - its actually quite a dark almost blacky colour in the background, with gorgeous sparkly green embroidery all over it. The lining/clasp/D ring info is as above
I'm thinking about maybe adding some bronze buttons near the point - what do people think?
Finally (another) houndstooth one. I thought to combat the hedonistic fit i had over the green bag, i would make something a bit more cutesy that i could use during the day. The strap on this one is attached, because its a little bit smaller than the others i didnt think i would ever really want to use a shoulder strap with it.
Anyway as always, absolutely ALL comments/ criticism/ unwarranted compliments welcome and positively encouraged
