Cabezas Belt #6064 out of faux leather. I had an issue with the sizing and had to take it in before I added two eyelets. I then made a matching ruffle clutch with the same material and a yellow jersey lining (leftover material from my summer pullover). I then used a magnetic closer on it with a zipper. I got the pattern for the clutch from a project called Red Suede Ruffled Wristlet. I changed the flap to be the same size as the purse and then made ruffles down the whole length. It was interesting to sew using faux leather. I did not realize I needed a special sewing machine foot. After finding out how expensive the tefflon foot was I opted for the rolling foot (a descent alternative). It was $17 Canadian.
Material Glue (for the clutch to hold the flap pieces together in the centre);
