A clutch?




the other day, i saw a clutch in a shop in cwb.  it is made of vintage fabrics and lace.  the handle has a bangle so one can either hold on to it or slide it up on the arm (then no need to carry the clutch with hand)...  kinda nice but i didn't get it cos "let me try to make one similar". 

so went home, dig out the bangles i have, mix-and-match them with the fabrics and lace i have. when i finally decided on the fabrics and lace, i couldn't decide which bangle to use...  in the end, i sewed two invisible buttons onto the inside of the handle... so i can change my mind easily (which i always do, haha)... then i thought it was still a bit bare.  just one piece of lace didn't seem to be detailed enough.  crocheted the brown lace with linen threads and sewed it to the edge of the flap... done, finally.

the clutch turned out to be a bit larger than i want...  but i will still use it... hehe...
