I am going through a clutch-y(if there is a word like that) phase.. I made a few clutches for my Etsy store.. Did I tell you that I went fabric shopping with my Hubster? He is the sweetest thing.. He accompanies me in all my craft-shopping trips and even gives me suggestions on what to and what not to buy. Thanks, Honey! So, in my recent craft-shopping trip, I bought this purple and teal paisley fabric and coordination teal fabric. I decide to make a clutch out of it and I really like the way it came out. It is available in my Etsy store if you want to buy it..

fold-over clutch - purple-teal-paisley

I love the paisley pattern in the fabric and purple is the color of the Royals. :-) Its a roomy clutch..you can stash your cash,make up and cell phone and still have space for more odds and ends. The clutch has been reinforced with fusible interfacing to provide itself a firm structure.

So, after making this clutch in cotton fabrics, I wanted to make it in silk to see how it comes out. And, luckily I had taffeta silk fabric in two colors, red and beige. Gorgeous color combination, I say! So, I made the clutch in 2 versions. I just interchanged the interior and exterior fabrics to get two different clutches.

This is the one with the red exterior and beige interiors. The best thing about these clutches is that you can pair it up with either a red or a beige ensemble. They are versatile in that way. The clutches as usual have been reinforced with fusible interfacing to make them firm.

Here is the one with beige exterior and red interior. There is a cute fabric yo-yo button on the flap on the two clutches to add some detail. The clutch folds over so that the contents don't spill out of it and closes with a magnetic snap for added security.

As usual, click on the images to buy them from my Etsy store or please find the link to my Etsy store on the pane to your right to see other items from me.
