Here are two clutches I recently made with the free Kwik Sew Clutch pattern http://www.kwiksew.com/Projects/5001.pdf. Really easy pattern to follow. I did struggle with the stiff interfacing being it was my first time using the Pellon 70. I really didn't like the wrinkled effect from the fusible interfacing...any tips to keep this from happening is appreciated. After my mom seen my skull clutch she fell in love with the shape/size and wanted one for herself but with a purse strap.  I couldn't convince her to let me make her a skull one   Cheesy so I made her a zebra one...now whenever we go shopping I can spot her a mile away  Wink . Thanks for looking~~ Mary :mrgreen:

I really like the strap that you added.  I'm not a "clutch girl", but I liked the shape of the purse, so the strap would make it even better for me.  Good work!

You know, I downloaded this pattern too, and I looked at the one they displayed and was like..."but it looks so drab  Sad" Now I have to make one, yours is so fabulous! I love the fabric, the bow, the key fob, everything!

Those are beautiful!  Surprisingly, given my aversion to animal prints (long story involving a psycho ex of my mom's), I LOVE the zebra one.

I love the monogram patches on these bags! Did you make them?

Wow thanks, wasn't expecting so many nice comments Grin. I love the skull fabric, I actually have 5 yards of it sitting at home just begging to be used. Dh said I couldn't order any more fabric till I used this one so I had to come up with something.

betty bat The strap looks better than I expected. I'm not so much a clutch girl either but I figured it would be nice to try something new besides making myself yet another huge bag. Plus with a toddler its nice to leave the diaper bag in the car and just have a small bag to run errands with.

LilySnape Oh so you also like the wild prints Wink. Then I guess you would like the giraffe fabric I just purchased too. My mom bought and entire bolt of zebra fabric Shocked last year when she was on a zebra kick.

Seraphina_de_Sangre Oh wow I actually inspired you to make one, I'm blushing Cheesy. You know I too came across this pattern (the first time) about a year ago and said "Blahhhh, how boring Tongue." I wasn't as creative back then  Undecided. But then I found it again (1 month ago) while looking to purchase a clutch/small purse pattern and the lightbulb went off......this could work with a little jazzing up. And it did Cool. Good luck, looking forward to seeing what you come up with!

DivaLea Thanks! Yes I made the patches, that part actually wasn't planned. I originally was going to embroider the design directly onto the bag. Normally I like to do a practice test of any designs (especially after merging two together) before I apply to the real item . Well I loved the test design so much I couldn't see just tossing it aside after spending 30 minutes on it so I used my applique scissors to cut it out as close as possible. It looked so plain just sewn on top the flap so I started playing around with ribbon and loved the effect of the patch sewn on top the ribbon. We love monogramming everything here in the South so after I had DD I saved $ for a year so I could get and embroidery machine. It was worth every penny.

THanks again! ~~Mary
