Sewing - Flower Clutch10:08 AM
I'm going to a kind of dressy event tonight and I needed a clutch. I have an old flower print dress that I figured i'd cut up and turn into a clutch.
I'm not really a clutch kind of girl. I pretty much carry my entire house with me, so I was looking for a simple tutorial.
In my mind I was thinking that i'd make something like this:
|Basic (but cute) flower print clutch|
Just a basic bag to carry my junk.
Well imagine my surprise and delight when a quick google search revealed THIS:
|Adorable Flower Clutch|
Yes, ma'am, I knew right away that this was the clutch for me! Credit where credit is due - this delish design comes from the website Melly Sews. Her site includes a great tutorial and a free downloadable pattern. YAY MELLY - I think she's my new favorite person!
I was able to make the clutch in about an hour using left over fabric from when I made the circle skirt from a sheet.

I used beads at the center of my flower clutch instead of a fabric knot, but i'm very pleased with how it turned out.
I'll post pix of my the event after the party.
UPDATE: We had a great night of fun and friends hosted by Tiffany and Co at the Garden State Plaza in Paramus, NJ. Here are a few pictures from the event!
