Pink Tweed Curvy Clutch

Hmmmm so my self-imposed fabric ban is not really working out. So far I have bought 5 fat quarters of DS quilts fabric, some delicious echino, two fat quarters of Lecien flower sugar for my Swoon quilt (that I have not started yet because I resolved to finish the projects I have before starting a new one*) and some white Moda (but that does not count because I need it to finish a quilt).

When I went to put this DS fabric in my fabric drawer I noticed that it went perfectly with the left over fabric I had from my pretty pinafore purse.

And so the Pink Tweed Curvy Clutch was born.

I used the Curvy Clutch pattern from Keyka Lou and made the wristlet. This style is a great little going out bag as it can fit everything you need for a night out. Although I love big bags I always feel more glam carrying a clutch.

The DS quilts fabric works perfectly with the tweed

And I used this sweet heart shaped magnetic snap on the inside. I'm so happy I can't wait to take it out.

I don't even feel (too) bad about the fabric purchases :)

* OK I confess I started a new project today, I'm knitting a cardi for my baby niece because it is perfect knitting weather :)

  1. what a nice little pouch, it sure needs taking out and being shown.
    And don't worry about the knitting - it's another kind of craft so it shouldn't really count as another project.
