So, I have been sewing a LOT lately, and I am really starting to fall in love with it more and more each time I make something. A couple of months ago I made these clutches and finally got around to making another one a few days ago. I had been
drooling on my laptop while cruising through browsing through The Pleated Poppy, and came across her zippered pouches and sunglasses cases. I LOVE Lindsey's fabric choices and everything she comes up with. She is adorable and uber creative! (Her kids are pretty datgum cute, too!) After making the clutches for our trip, I had the confidence to give it a whirl and figure out how to make a knock-off of her zippered pouch and sunnie case that I had fallen in love with.
Here is what I ended up with!
MMMMM ruffles. I love ruffles. We've covered that before though.
I decided to throw caution to the wind and give boxing the corners a try. It was fun, easy, and added some dimension and umph to my little clutch! I'm so glad I didn't chicken out and gave it a try.
I added a d-ring because, well I don't know why. But I added it. I ended up making a little wristlet to match on a little clip so I can have it if I want to carry it on it's own, and can take it off if I use it as a little pouch inside of my purse to house little tonka trucks and cheerios. Yes, that's really what I carry in my purse.
The lining is also boxed (it would be silly otherwise) and matches the ruffles.
