Once again I am head over heels for the newest bag pattern from Swoon Sewing Patterns; the Coraline Clutch. <3 <3 <3
This clutch comes with two different size options, and a wristlet option. I made the large size. Even though I think this bag is just perfect the way it is, I added pleats to mine.
For a little bit of size comparison in the picture above I am holding the bag; albeit loosely.
I had my daughter take the picture of me holding the bag, so, of course, she had to have one of her holding it too. She is four years old.
I used Amy Butler's Belle fabric in pine. For the handles I used a yummy faux suede fabric I picked up at JoAnn Fabrics. It was found in the home dec area and is nice and sturdy, but not too thick. It was so perfect for the handles!
The clutch features a recessed zipper. It is probably one of the easiest ways to install a zipper. Which means that this big was really pretty quick to sew up.
I am already making plans to sew a few more of these. A girl can never have too many bags, right? NEVER!
Now, check out all this beautiful Coraline eye candy!
