Gathered Clutch Finish

In week 2 of the May is for Makers campaign, I purchased the Gathered Clutch from Noodlehead. And this past weekend, I decided to use the pattern to make myself a new clutch in some of the fat quarters I had been hoarding for a while now.

I chose a black fabric for the outside and the accent fabric is a really nice mustard.  And I couldn't believe it when I found a zipper that matched that mustard fabric perfectly in my stash!

The lining is a grey fabric and I used the same accent mustard fabric for the divider and card holder.

The pattern was extremely easy to follow and produces a really nice looking clutch.  And with the interfacing, it has just the perfect amount of "stiff", even with just the quilting cotton.  And let's face it, that gathered front is a really cute design element.

The whole thing only took about 2 hours to make so this would be a perfect gift.  You could make one in every colour of the rainbow if you wanted!  :-)  I know I plan on making a couple more...

I will be linking up at Crazy Mom Quilts for Finish It Up Friday and at Quilt Matters for TGIFF.


  1. Love the mustard with black and the contrasting zipper! Great finish!

  2. What a great finish, Izzy! That gathered front is such a great accent -- makes me think of Audrey Hepburn for some reason -- classic and stylish!

  3. Excellent combination of fabrics! Very classy
