Usually, I procrastinate and procrastinate until the last possible minute, but not this time. I’m done with my envelope clutch a full two days ahead of the deadline!
I’m really happy with the way it turned out and I think using an embroidered pillow sham may have been one of my best ideas yet. The tutorial and pattern that Kate designed is very quick and easy to follow. There’s no reason you can’t make one every time you have a special night out planned so it coordinates with your outfit.
I even added a little pocket for an I.D. and credit card, so that I don’t have to worry about bulking up the clutch with a wallet. There’s one sewist in the Flickr pool that added a strap, which would be another great addition.
I hope everyone gives this clutch a try, and if you do, I’d love to hear how yours came out. Thanks to Kate at See Kate Sew for the tutorial and for hosting a fun clutch-along!
