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
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
) and they are super exy!)

and the inside, vintage print fabric, left over from a pair of pants i made previously
here is my original sketch of the design (abit out of proportion)
