Made It: Gathered Clutch

Last week I made up this gathered clutch from this tutorial over at noodle-head. I love it! The tutorial was pretty easy, though the pictures don't necessarily match up with what things should look like, so don't let that throw you off if you try it. Also, don't forget to fuse your interfacing to the back of the outside back piece. I also wish that my zipper was a little longer. I put all my cards (including all my punch cards, rewards cards, etc) in it, along with my check book, and getting things in and out is a little snug. Now that I've been using it for a little while, I actually REALLY love it! :) But otherwise I love it! It works perfectly for what I wanted, and I love the style. :)

Take a look!

I also put an extra row of card holders in it. The front one I cut an inch off the bottom and lined it up with the bottom of the lining like she does in the picture, and placed the second one in behind that. (Though I sewed in the one that is behind first!)



Thanks for stopping by! :)

  1. Super cute! Your fabrics are so bright and cheerful, perfect for spring. I made that pattern a few months ago and really liked it too. I wound up making one as the pattern specified and making a slightly larger version by adding a few inches and giving both away as a set. These make great gifts.
