In my last post I talked about my constant inspiration from the internet, and how I often find myself finding more things that I want to create than I actually have time for! And this Travel Clutch came from here.
I obviously loved the leather and all the different colors of them, but unfortunately my little sewing machine doesn’t accommodate the thickness of leather, so until then I’ll just have to enjoy my pretty wovens and knits!
I adjusted the pattern just a bit for my clutch because it had to work well for my purpose and with the different fabric. Since my intention for this piece was to be more of a travel clutch than a wallet like it is shown, I didn’t do the credit card holders because it didn’t make sense for the size of my piece and for the function. And instead added an outside back pocket with velcro closure so you can hide some chapstick in there or other small joys that you need easy access too.
I closed all of the inner pockets with a small strip of velcro also because it made the clutch lay flatter than with a zipper, and would keep everything from falling out, unlike a button. And with the way us women throw stuff in our bags something is bound to fall out! At least that’s what I experience!
After making this cute little thing I was playing with it and discovered that you can also wear it inside out and have all the pockets facing the outside of the clutch! I don’t have a picture of it this way but hopefully you could imagine.
*****Each product is handmade and re-purposed from second hand clothing and fabrics and is completely one of a kind, I couldn’t duplicate any of these bags even if I wanted too! It’s my way of going green and staying in style.
