|That fancy metal handle is from Emmalinebags!|
|Opened up - zipper pocket AND a slip pocket|
|Inside the zipper pocket - card slots plus room for a few other things!|
I dove into my stash and finally cut into my Michael Miller Fairy Frost and Robert Kaufman Effervescence. The Fairy Frost has a shimmer to it that is hard to catch in a picture, but in person it's much prettier! I have a few more colorways of the Effervescence that I'm trying to find the perfect project for...the fabric reminds me of fractals and has a great border on one side!
|Back of clutch - that is the border on the fabric!|
The hardest part of this project was cutting into my nearly finished clutch to install the handle! There is an option for a metal border instead, but the oval handles are a really neat accent! I think installing the handle took me just as long as sewing the entire thing because I didn't want to mess it up! I did what the instructions told me to, but I must have still cut on the small side because it took several attempts to get the handles to fit just right. I was covered in shaved fabric pieces by the end!
|Cover me, I'm going in! I felt like a surgeon. Or a thug, with my switchblade exacto...|
