This was a fun recycling project! I used only second hand materials to make this clutch – upholstery remnant, lining, flower (also handmade out of several 2nd hand flowers), zipper, wool, thread.
The brocade pattern of the fabric caught my eye in the thrift store, and I immediately knew this was going to make a gorgeous purse or clutch. This fastens with a bright turquoise zipper (to match the accent of the turquoise wool stitching), and is lined in yellow.
Very pleased with the outcome!
