I would like to introduce you to my new obsession.... Knife pleats!!  I decided to knife pleat a piece of denim and somehow it evolved into a foldover clutch.  I sewed down the pleats so they wouldn't gape open.  I'm so proud of this baby and can't wait to carry it.  Here it is.



Here is the front unfolded...



And the unfolded back...



I self-lined it on the inside...



I was going to put a pretty crystal brooch/pin on the front for embellishment, but sometimes those pins come open and you can lose/damage the brooch, so I used buttons instead.  I attacked my button stash and found these green buttons and sewed them on instead.



Do you like my bag??

Ahhh yes knife pleats. If theres a pleat more elegant, more beautiful I have yet to find discover it. I can't believe thats denim it looks like velvet in the pics, oh so stylish.
