In my recent post, Sew Faux, I shared my handmade faux leather A-line skirt. I l-o-v-e-d the softness and texture of the faux leather. I l-o-v-e-d it so much that I had to make something from the left over fabric. So, I created a simple yet stylish clutch that can be used season after season.
I came up with a design in my head and created a pattern. Instead of an envelope style flap I opted for a stylish curve. This softened the square clutch and made it a bit more contemporary. To add a bit of colorful detail, I chose to outline the clutch with a wide decorative stitch in a multi-colored thread.
More color! More detail! I used a stencil, exacto knife, colorful fabric, fusible interfacing, iron and my sewing machine to create this fun motif and wrist strap.
The lining is colorful, of course, and includes a couple of handy pockets.
And what did I do with the lil’ bit of fabric I had left over after making the clutch? I made a mini clutch. I outlined it in the same fashion as the large clutch but this time added 3-dimensional detail by sewing on the butterfly previously cut out.
Suprise! Vibrant print lines this lil’ beauty too. And the wrist straps are interchangeable.
There you have it!
