cute clutch and a rethink

After the stressy rant of my last post, I am pleased to show a completed project.  A cute clutch purse which I have made for a friends birthday.  the pattern I used is by Keyka Lou.  It's really nice and easy and has a cool alternative method for sewing up a purse / bag with a drop in lining.

I have also decided to whip up a little buttercup bag of my own to take on holiday, as well as maybe a quick summer dress for the beach using this pattern Butterick 5216 (view C), and just making it a bit longer so it's a dress rather than a tunic.

It's elasticated so should be an easy fit / sew.

Hopefully this'll make me feel a bit better about my fitting torment and I'll have a couple of me made bits to take on holiday! I'm not sure what to do about getting better at fitting, but thanks for all the supportive comments to my last post!


  1. What a pretty little bag! :) I love the top pattern too, looks nice and simple to fit :)

  2. Adorable clutch Bag! It looks so professional and I love the lining. Good on you for changing tack, that pattern's a great choice and what with being a supreme bag maker hopefully will boost your sewing spirit - nothing better than making something to wear on hols :-)

  3. Cute wee bag, and I love the houndstooth interior!


Please comment, I'd love to hear from you
