Kansas City, Mis...
I altered the pattern I used for my first reversible clutch so much I think I can get away with naming it after the friend I made it for. I did gathering instead of pleats and I sewed disc magnets between two layers of vinyl, then sewed that into the band of the bag so that when you turn it inside out, it still closes. I really felt like it needed some sort of detail, but I’m not sold on the bow.
recycled slacks (wool?) for the bow side, recycled dress shirt (silk?) for the other side, thick vinyl for the inside of the bands, 1/2 disc magnets for closure.
