This is my third finished project using an old sewing machine I recently taught myself how to use. It is made of a lightweight blackish-green tweed plaid (i think it is suiting fabric) and is lined with an army green fabric of the same type. It is "embellished" (I love that word!) with chartreuse grosgrain ribbon, a vintage-y button, and more of the same army green fabric. It also has a velcro closure.
Because I'm new to sewing, I thought I would give the clutch a slighly "distressed" look so it wouldn't have to be so polished... cheating, I know - but I think it actually turned out pretty well. I frayed the army green fabric a bit and did some unpolished stitching to attach details to the clutch.
Tell me what you think!

And hoping for an early death you swam so far you lost your breath, and struggling in the ebb and flow I took your hand, but you let go...
And now the ocean fills your lungs, and now you've got what you had come for, resting peaceful as you sink to drown under a sea of strangers.

-E. Bachmann
