I love these!  you did a great job!  I'm trying to get up the nerve to attempt the laurasaurus clutch and these are really inspiring me.

did you use interfacing?

You should try it, Arabella! Her tutorial is really good.  I'm just a dork who trims the lining before reading that it's ok that the lining is taller than the bag. Oops.  Smiley

I didn't use interfacing on the bag part as the fabric I used was fairly sturdy. I did add interfacing to the band, as instructed. I figure I will try it out for a while and then decide if I need to use it on future clutches.

wow that was a quick reply!  Ok, you've talked me into it!  I'd love to be able to skip interfacing, I'll check out the home dec area.  I am in love with your orange fabric!

thanks for the tips!

Yeah, I go through phases of craftster checking obsession and the frequency of my posts very much reflects that.  Cheesy

I got the orange in the remnants bin on a day that the remnants were like an additional 50% off or something crazy. But I do believe that it was most likely from the 45" home decor section...which tends to be more limited than the 54" section and rarely on as good of sale.  Sad

What a lovely thoughtful gift. Whenever I go on a trip, I try to bring one absolutely smashing bright item that will jazz up almost anything and the orange clutch definately qualifies! Love your fabric too!

Make more and SELL! There is a great boutique in my neighborhood that carries "mini designer" creations. You only have to make a few for them to display and sell it. Maybe there's a similar shop near you too? Give it a try! Share your fab bags with the rest of the girly world.

these are super cute!!

i have a quick question about the tags - so is it just shrinky dinks? and if it is, did you print them somehow?

Once again, I have to give credit to smoon26 for the brilliant tag idea. Smiley

Yup, it's just shrinky dinks!  You have to buy the shrinky dink for inkjet printers material.  I couldn't find the brand name stuff so I bought an off brand but it works just as well.  You use the stuff just like you would use normal paper: stick it in your inkjet printer and print away! I love it. All of my friends are mesmerized by the shrinky dink process.  Smiley I even have a guy friend who wants to have a shrinky dink night and make tags for his climbing equipment!
