These are totally inspired by Andrea at Lush Stuff and her post on Friday about her patchwork clutches she makes, after seeing her pics of her latest clutches, I needed to find out how to make them!
I was able to track down this tuturial from u-handbag.typepad.com that showed how to use a purse frame, and voila!
Three little mini clutches, perfect as a small makeup carrier or little pouch for random things! Once I started making them, I couldn't stop...
It's definitly a work in progress, working to get the pattern just right, but I think each one turned out better than the one previous
Once I got the hang of it, I was whipping these things up in no time! Now to find somewhere to buy these purse frames in bulk!
My sewing machine got quite the work out today...I also started the quilting on my hexagon quilt-a-long quilt top
Just a sneak peak! Now I'm a little stumped about how to do the binding on this, since its not a square, but the edges aren't scalloped or anything...I'm assuming I'll need to do a bias cut binding, but I'm also assuming I won't be able to a standard mitred corner like on a rectangular quilt.
Hmmm, any suggestions on what my best bet would be?? I guess I'll consult my friend Google, I'm sure he'll be able to find an answer for me, if all else fails :)
