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!

Love it! That fabric is awesome, and I love that you have a pocket watch hanging off it.

That is sooo neat I really like that it doesnt have straight angles, add some life into bags and wallets, ect. Good job!
