so, this is my 3rd bag, first clutch.  i read this tutorial ( http://u-handbag.typepad.com/uhandblog/2007/03/rather_sexy_wri.html ) about 20 times before i attempted it.  i made my pattern larger/different dimensions.

the exterior is cotton fabric (covered with iron on vinyl) that i originally used as interior in a different bag.  i fell in love with it and knew it had to be a clutch.  i went and got more, got myself a snazzy pocketwatch and made myself this fancy clutch.



its not too big.  it held my wallet, cigarettes, chapstick brand lipbalm and my phone at a wedding last weekend.



i keep the watch in the purse but i think i might just lose the chain.  i can't decide.



any thoughts?  comments are much appreciated.

Oooooo!!! I love this! I think it looks great with the chain and the watch, but I can also see how that could get bothersome with the hitting you and what not... anyway, it's gorgeous, great job!

first of all, thank you all for the comments!  i'm really please with how it turned out.

the material, brokenporcelaindoll, is something i found at joanns.  its called antique clock white.  and i just used iron on vinyl because it is 100% cotton and i wanted something stronger.

thanks again!
