I had treated myself to a new die for my Go! cutter about a month ago, but didn’t pull it out until this last weekend finally. In the midst of making jam, and keeping the laundry moving (mostly) I was inspired to make this little clutch! I decided I needed a clutch to go along with my bag, because going out for dinner, or running to pick up at school doesn’t always require the entire bag.
I pulled out some recent additions and my 3″ finished HST die, and cut just enough to make the exterior. Then had fun laying out the design. I love how the Go! cuts the triangles, ready to sew – no trimming, or marking required!
The trickiest part was making sure I had a mirror image of the lining, but it went together really fast, much like my iPad cover. For this bag I used decor bond on the exterior, and fusible fleece plus decor bond in the lining; together the interfacings give it a nice shape without being too crisp.
It’s finished with a magnetic snap, and just the right size for my wallet, keys, and phone. Exactly what I was looking for, and it fits in my big bag no problem!
Fun times at the sewing machine – I love a successful new idea! Now back to planning the Sewing Summit, and all those details. Bloggers’ Quilt Festival is also on my mind – who’s ready??
