Kate at See Kate Sew is hosting a clutch-along. I’m participating because it seems like a lot of fun and then I have an awesome envelope clutch at the end. I’ve always wanted to participate in an online sew-along like this, but I never hear about them in time or I’m too late and miss them altogether.
A while back, I found this Amy Butler pillow sham at a Ross on sale for only $4! I had to buy it knowing that I would take it apart and use the beautiful embroidered fabric for something wonderful. I’ve come very close to using it for a couple of different projects, but I’m glad I didn’t because I think it’s perfect for the envelope clutch.
You can find the pattern and instructions at See Kate Sew. As for the supplies, there’s not much to it.
- 1/2 yard fabric (or 1 fat quarter)
- 1/2 yard lining (or 1 fat quarter)
- 1/2 yard midweight fusible interfacing
- 1 button, any size
Kate even put together a tutorial on using a buttonhole attachment, so if you’re nervous about that step, you really don’t have to be.
The clutch-along ends March 4th and Kate will pick some clutches to feature on her website. Be sure to post a photo of your clutch in the Flickr group.
You really should join in the fun. Everyone’s doing it. You know you want to.
