a new clutch (lessons learned)
This is the artsy clutch from Bend-The- Rules - Sewing.
Some lessons learned while sewing this today. The fabric I used which is lovely is too flimsy for this bag in my opinion. I would have been better off with a quilting cotton or something sturdier. I would make the bag a little bigger than called for...a few extra inches would suffice as it's a bit small in my opinion. Lastly, I would be extra careful to follow directions when doing the lining as I made a mistake here and my seams are showing on the lining.
That said, I think it's a good pattern.
It was also a welcome distraction as I'm working on a sewing project for a relative that is not exactly thrilling me at the moment
