my latest... a friend of mine wanted a really chic, fashionable clutch. she loves going out salsa dancing and wanted a really sleek yet funky clutch to carry. this is what i came up with. the leather is absolutely amazing on this thing. it was left over real leather from a custom furniture place so it's really top quality. i decided to turn the leather inside out and sewed the "wrong" side out. i loved the texture. she is very stylish and is obssessed with shoes!... and so i found this fabric that was absolutely perfect for her. i added a few embellishments here and there....and voila!

anyway here are the results:

thanks for looking! Smiley Smiley Smiley

oh thank you thank you! i just came up with it myself. it was hard for me on this one. if you check out most of my purses i usually if not ALWAYS use corduroy...leather was quite a challenge for me, both because of texture and embellishment style. and on top of that....i think my machine may be mad at me a little....haha. it was tough to sew... the girl i made it for is also very fashion conscious....so i wanted to make sure it fit her style. i'm so glad you like it.

Its GORGEOUS!!! I want one. It is the best thing you've made yet (to me anyway). Your bags are always cool but this one is so beautiful.

What an incredibly thoughtful bag. Your friend must be grateful. I absolutely adore the embellishments, especially the ruffles. They're arranged in such a crisp, graphic way. Well done.

*mouth open with no words coming out*

that is the most amazing bag i've seen...did you use any stiffening on the inside at all? or is the leather sufficiently stiff to keep its shape?

i want one!!!!

thanks everyone! i've got such good feed back on this clutch purse that i think i'm going to continue making more!

i didnt use anything to really stiffen it completely, but i did use just cotton batting that you would usually use for quilting. it gave it more of a shape, although it's still a little floppy. it should be fine as soon as she puts her stuff in it.  Smiley the batting gives it a soft "fluffy" feel.
