Nude leather clutch and matching purse

Added Apr 4, 2010

I needed a new leather bag to go with nude shoes I bought recently. I decided to make a matching purse too because my everyday purse is too bulky for a clutch. The matching purse is big enough to hold credit cards etc. The applique on the front of the clutch and purse are all individual pieces stitched on. I cut templates on paper first to check the size then cut the leather and sewed them on to the front of the bag before I sewed the leather to the lining. The bag and purse took about 5 hours to complete. This bag and purse are my own design.

Material Notes

Beautiful soft nude genuine leather skin. White satin lining, gold magnetic clasps bought from a supplier in the UK and sew in heavy-weight interfacing to stiffen the bag.
