Sewing - Flower Clutch

10:08 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!

Iman chose really beautiful accessories for me!

I liked this pattern so much that I made a second bag
