I have been itching to try making a clutch purse for a while now and when a free frame came with a magazine I subscribe to, I had no reason but to give it a go! Initially I had been put off making one as it seemed difficult to make however the reality is that it isn’t too difficult and what’s more, it is kind of addictive! I have already ordered more purse frames in different sizes, and I can’t wait to get started on them.
I used this tutorial from u-handbag, it is a fantastic tutorial and very easy to follow.
I used my vintage “Blackthorn” fabric by Samuel Morris for Sanderson. I really like the flow of this fabric and I felt the pattern suited the size of the purse. The lining is just plain white linen for a nice crisp finish.
My daughter has already picked out the fabric she wants me to make her purse out of and I have some beautiful vintage fabric that will look lovely as clutch purse so I think I am going to be kept busy!
