This was a fun recycling project! I used only second hand materials to make this clutch – upholstery remnant, lining, ribbon, crochet yarn, button, 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. I sewed this in a subtly trapezoidal shape, with ribbon and button as accents. This has a crochet loop fastener.
Very pleased with the outcome!
