I know we've all seen the placematt bags before.  This bag was made using a scrap of fabric and a round (circle) placematt.  I was blog hopping the other day and found WobiSobi.  She has a tutorial for this bag if you'd like to check it out.

http://wobisobi.blogspot.com/2011/03/placemat-clutch.html

Here is my version...

I chose a red placematt with a coordinating fabric.  Basically, the bag needs to be lined somewhat in order to put in the magnetic snap and have it be hidden.  You could completely line it if you wanted to. 


Flap open...


Inside...seems pretty roomy to me.  There are no pockets.


I think the length of the clutch actually makes it look great while you are clutching it under your arm.  So many clutches are small and you can't see it when you're actually carrying it.  This one? Not so.


I made a lace rosette for decoration...it definitely needed something to pretty it up a bit.


So, thoughts?  The tutorial is VERY basic and is hand drawn.  If you've never sewn before I think it could be difficult to understand. 

Just a bit more information on my blog if you're interested...

That's a very clever idea. I've seen the placemat bags before, but not with a circle one.  The red straw makes the black rose really pop.

It is both elegant and cute - you could pair it with lots of different combinations.

This is lovely!  I love the shape of it and the addition of the flower is perfect.  Fantastic!
