Stayed up waaaaaay too late last night working on this clutch. It took me so long just to get motivated to start, but once I did, I couldn’t stop. The original vision I had in mind was for a crossbody bag, however I didn’t have any matching hardware to make it possible.
This was the first attempt using both faux suede and fringe in a sewing project. It was surprisingly easy to work with. I didn’t need any special needle and my regular machine foot worked fine.
The whole basis for the clutch was actually because I wanted to use the Aztec print fabric that I used as the lining. I LOVE LOVE LOVE it for some reason. Even the woman at the cutting table was drawn to it and wasn’t sure why.
I love that it is colorful and fun, and stands out so well against the faux suede without being overly bright and loud.
