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.
