(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?

The vinyl was a bit hard for a first go but if you know what your doing i bet you would be fine. Smiley I am a bit disapointed in it Sad... and can tell by lack of replies so is everyone else... thats ok.  Wink Ill just have to make my next clutch much better! Grin

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!
