It's a fun design and I was delighted that I was able to fussy cut some long hoarded Joel Dewberry fabrics (which I featured on the flap and front pocket) to make my version a extra special for the recipient. The pocket is pieced on the original design - but I think choosing a treasured fabric to make it in one piece is a great option!
The fabric I used for the all the exterior pieces is a decorator weight, which worked beautifully to give the clutch a crisp shape. It did make it a little more challenging in terms of bulk, due to the darts that form the curved shaped, but I made sure to stagger rather than stack the direction of them when pressing and stitching.
I wanted to play up the hot pink accents on the front pocket, so I selected a quilting cotton in the same colour for the lining of the back inset pocket and for the lining of the clutch. I love that pop of pink when you open up the zippers!
The pattern is well written, easy to follow and gives such professional results that it may not be a surprise that no sooner did I finish this one, I started cutting out a second. ;o)
