Pretty Clutch


I have a new clutch...Errrr...What so special with that?
Remember this wallet? It's THE ONLY everyday wallet I have. Can't you believe that???
Well, I was planing to use only my handmade for my things, but poor me, I didn't have time was too lazy to make things. Most of the time I make thing when I need it. And yes, I need it now. This wallet really need some wash. On top of everything, I need to practice what I have learned from books and from great people out there who have willingly and kindly shared their knowledge.

For this clutch I used the tutorial from this book. For the fabric I used local canvas fabric for the outer and cotton for the lining. I was (still) experimenting on the interfacing. I used several types of interfacing for this clutch.

Two buttons?? Well...I did not plan on that. It was my hubb brilliant idea. He found me crying, screaming desperately knowing I mistakenly measured when installed the button after a long 3 hours working. He gave me the idea to install new button instead of replace the main body and used the old one for an accent. Brilliant!!

This clutch has 3 card slots, zippered pocket and 2 roomy compartment for cash, bills, and my cell phone. And my own label ;)

 Though it was not perfect, I was pretty pleased with the result as it was my first trial.
 And definitely will sew more. Practice makes perfect, right?!

Have a nice day


  1. Very beautiful clutch! I will have to make one for myself!

    1. Thank you Quin!! We deserve it :)
      And I love your crafting idea too...perfect for kiddos

  2. Yes, practice makes perfect. And you are already on the good track!
    After all, the two buttons are absolutely plausible as an intended decoration! ;-)
    Well done!

    1. Thank you Roby! You make me feel much more confident. I need a lot more practices, though. :)

  3. Looks so lovely! The fabric is beautiful and the slots you have created are perfect!
