clutch.




tonight I sewed this clutch. pardon the multiple errors; choosing to use vinyl on the inside was ridiculous. my sewing machine hates sewing vinyl and so do many needles. I had to hand-stitch quite a few parts because of this.

this was my FIRST time using a pattern...for anything. I don't like using patterns. first off because I hate reading directions and second because I feel like it limits my creativity. something about using a pattern seems like cheating. I'm the same way about cooking. I always want to change something in a recipe at least slightly, so it's my own. okay, okay but I decided to try for the first time ever... a pattern! I added my twist though. they obviously did not design slot holders for quarters and keys :)

How well does it close when you have more things in it?

good actually. there is a lot of room. I could even put my wallet in there too. It's strange because the picture(s) in the pattern make theirs look super flat-- mine is thick because of the vinyl, but the pattern allows for a good amount of room on the inside.

(good for what we might expect by looking at the pattern. In comparison to another small clutch, it holds less...but I can get a thin wallet and phone in mine)
