I made this for the handspun handicraft swap. It's a pleated clutch made from this absolutely mint condition vintage...brocade? It even has gold foil woven all through it. My great aunt had it hidden away for decades and just recently gave it to me.
The pattern came from my noggin. I wanted a rounded bottom, so I cut the front and back as one piece.
Here is it filled with something:
It was fun to make, I had a hard time parting with it. The only thing is I wish I could have centered the pattern, but the piece I had didn't allow for it.
Edited to add:
I'm kicking myself for not taking better closeups, as I took the time to identically pleat the lining, and used a matching metallic gold thread to topstitich around the handle. There's a nice little magnetic clasp holding it closed. I think I used 2 layers of heavyweight interfacing for the handle pieces.
