Oriental Pink Zippered Clutch #1

After I finished making the Oriental Pink bag, I had several nice-sized scraps leftover. I decided to make a clutch (or two) with them. This would be perfect to go inside the larger bag, so you could just grab the clutch if you were going into a store.

This zippered clutch features a matching grosgrain ribbon wrist strap. I used the main fabric as well as the lining fabric for this one.

Here you can see how easy this is to carry! [I made a different one for myself, and I've been using it a few days. I love it!] It has a depth of approximately 2", so it can carry a lot more than it looks like.

This is lined in the same print as the bottom of the clutch.

I was going to put this one in the shop, but my daughter has commandeered it. (I had given my son a manly "project fail," so I had to even the score and give her something, too.) There's more to come with this fabric tomorrow, and I've saved it for the shop! :)

I love this, too! I carry a wristlet all the time and finally broke down and learned to make them! The zipper was a little scary at first! lol ♥

Oh yes, I forgot to mention what a complete nightmare that zipper was ... I worked on it for eight hours before I figured it out. Lesson learned: never try to learn to install an invisible zipper on a complicated project, like something with a lining. :)

This is my day to say things are pretty. (Just left a comment on another blog saying that.) Your clutch is so pretty! Love it!
