New Clutch

I change bags/purses about 3-4 times a week... on days I have classes I use my backpack, on Sunday's I use my messanger bag, and the rest of the week I use whatever bag fits my mood.  With all this bag changing I needed a clutch or something to hold my essentials, which are phone, wallet, and chapstick, otherwise I would end up forgetting something.  A few weeks ago I made a little clutch.

I made some labels, too!  :)

Mihee is my Korean name... it means beauty and joy.  I thought it was appropriate for this clutch and hopefully my other sewing projects.  :) The labels are made from twill tape and printable iron-on transfer.  I had read about it somewhere awhile ago and can't remember where I saw it.  I believe there are lots of different tutorials on the web about this method.

I think I may make some more clutches for Christmas gifts... but I will need to add interfacing and use a different closure... the button is inconvenient and a little annoying.

Good idea -- I have left my wallet behind several times the past few weeks when switching from my handbag to my camera bag and back!

Great for Christmas gift! This fabric is really pretty like your Korean name :)))

How cute, love it and your Korean name is beautiful. How about trying snaps on the clutch, they come in all different sizes and are pretty easy to use once you get the hang of it, you will probably need to use a bigger snap to go through several layers. One warning if you use the pearl snaps they crack very easily so be gentle with the hammer.

@Antoinette - I know what you mean. Hehehe.. I'm so glad I got around to making one for myself.

@Eliana - Thank you!

@Tanya - I was considering using snaps. Thanks for the tip on pearl snaps!
