FINISHED-ON-FRIDAY (Wk 20)


FINISHED-ON-FRIDAY  (Wk 20)

That Monday fabric became a couple of clutch bags.  Clutch bags are becoming so popular and these were super easy to make.
 
The patchwork one I backed with a mid-weight fusible interfacing and just stitched in the ditch. Then I used a batik for lining and put a zipper in the usual way.
 
On this more modern looking clutch, I used a home dec fabric and did not use interfacing for the outside fabric.  However, I did use interfacing on the lining which is muslin.  It is also cut larger and a pocket was added with a place to attach your keys if wanted.  The zipper is inserted using tabs.   
 

I remember loving clutch bags back in the 80s.   I wonder if I will like using them now?

Have a good weekend and

Quilt happy,
Marilyn

Very nice project this week! Your clutch bags turned out great. I have never used one. Always needed a handle or something to keep it on my body. But they are indeed, becoming popular. Maybe, when all my other projects are done, I will try to make one.
