Description

Folding clutch bag made of denim sourced from some old jeans. The lining was a piece I bought especially for this. In hindsight the lining, when combined with the denim, was really too thick for this project. The seams are extremely bulky even after grading the allowances . There’s just too many layers at some points. Because of this, as you will see, the bag doesn’t sit as flat as I would like. I did make some changes to the pattern in that I rounded the front , added a wrist strap and changed the closure to a magnetic bag stud. I then stitched on a decorative button.
