My next challenge was to make a box clutch in the shape of a perfume bottle.
A couple of luxe designers made some perspex oversized perfume bottle bags and i thought it was super cute and ladylike and really brought something to their outfits.

So i set out to design one that would work with what i know how to make.
Something abit vintage/art deco.

I made this clutch slightly wider than the previous grapefruit clutch, so it can fit even more.

My biggest challenge was the bottle top. Of course, i wasnt content to just make it a simple rectangular topper or a regular rectangular body either, i had to try something a little bit more interesting. It was hard  Undecided

The main part is silk twill and its slightly padded on the front and back and the name plaque is hand embroidered (because i dont have an embroidery machine; too big (all my space is for shoes Cheesy) and they are super exy!)

check it out


and the inside, vintage print fabric, left over from a pair of pants i made previously  Wink



here is my original sketch of the design (abit out of proportion)

That is so cute and well done!  I love the champagne outside and then the bolder lining, and your structure is great.
