So many projects. So little time.

I think this is such a thoughtful gift idea!  So cute!  And STYLISH!  Who knew, 80's Barbie was ahead of her time  Wink

Girlfriend, let me tell you, Barbie was hip in the 70's, because I also had one of these back in the day!  Truth be known, Barbie's clutch was probably around before then, too!  Grin

Very cute and very thoughtful gift.  You are a lovely sister.

This is really cute, but I have to admit I was kind of disappointed that the big one didn't have the quilted diamond pattern of the tiny original.  I think this would have made it over-the-top awesome.  If I saw the one you made just out and about, I would think it was cute, but if I saw the one you made and it was quilted, I would have recognised it immediately as the Barbie clutch.  I do like the idea of the removeable pearl pin.  Maybe you could find a nice big pearl earring at a dollar store or thrift store you could recon!

I have extra fabric from it, I should really try a quilted one. I have an old sewing machine with one presser foot so I was glad I was able to get this part done! lol. Smiley I don't know if my presser foot will glide over the vinyl though...

I used to fight for the gold clutch, too. I love this project!

when I saw the pic of the barbie clutch on the "hot new topics" list, I knew exactly what it was! I had one of those for my dolls growing up too!  Smiley Your recreation is awesome and I really like the idea of a removable pearl pin.

I remember that clutch.  I think it was Barbie but I am not positive.  Great job!

I feel quite dissappointed that I did not have a barbie clutch as a child, I really feel I missed out here! My first barbie (or Bardy as I called it then) was given to me in 1990 and she had an amazing maribu white glittery dress and tiara. Unfortunately my mother sold all my barbies in a car boot sale. I so want one of these "grown-up" barbie clutches though, how amazing would that be on a night out!  Cheesy

One way to sew over vinyl is to use tissue paper between it and the presser foot and then tear it away when you're done.  Of course, with quilting that might make for hours of picking tiny bits of tissue out from under your stitches, so be warned.  I'm lucky to have picked up a Tephlon foot for my machine with a gift certificate, because I love making things out of vinyl and they're expensive.

Ooohh... thanks for the tip! I have a 1969 Singer and it only has one presser foot that's really good only for cotton. It presses too hard for jersey and it doesn't move at all over vinyl or pleather. I'll definitely have to try the tissue paper. Presser feet are so expensive!
