(sorry this one is still small... but it isnt very good quality anyways...

I have been making totes and handbags for a little while now and i just loooove clutches and seeing some of the fantastic ones that have been posted on here i thought i would share my first go. I made this out of an old vinyl skirt i had from the days when i used to DJ, hee hee. It had lining so i just used the lining for in the clutch. It didnt come out as good as i imagined, a bit puffy, and when i left a hole to pull the bag thru i did it on the side and you can see my hand stitching...  Roll Eyes (i wont do that next time) I prolly shouldnt have tried with such a difficult fabric on my first go. Roll Eyes And you cant really see, but i have sewn in a zip pocket... over the lining, not in it. There is a magnetic closure and I hand beaded the dragonfly myself! That turned out pretty good! Then i hand sewed it on. Sorry the pics arent too clear... im new to taking pics of my bags. (Anyone have any tips?) I hope you like it!? Please, any coments i would be welcomed! Good or bad (or should i say constructive... hee hee)  Grin I have been thinking of starting my own business, but just have to get enough bags made to sell! I am making a green pleated clutch now... but unsure what colour the lining should be... the green is a pastel sort of green. And very thin... so i might have to use something heavy... i was thinking denim?

Well don't be disappointed, I think it's fabulous!  I love the dragonfly!.  I used to get upset when no one replied but I look at how many people looked!  Keep posting I can't wait to see more of your stuff.

I think its lovely.  I've tried making a few things with vinyl and it can be difficult.

Thanks for the kind words... I just keep thinking everytime i make a bag i get better... This was my prototype so to speak, i am a perfectionist and if it doesnt work perfect the first time.. i usually get cranky and give up... haha.  Roll Eyes I had a moment today!  Cheesy But am off now to make a wristlet! Im not giving up that easy! hee hee
Thanks again!
