I thought I'd share something I made myself as a gift for my sister: An Evening Clutch, proudly hand made by moi!
The gift was well received and she couldn't believe I actually made it. I was happy. Now, I consider myself a beginner so if I can make it, anyone with a bit of patience and careful sewing can make this. As I mentioned in a previous post, my first attempt at this was a disaster. I read the instructions and was like WTF this doesn't make sense!! so I decided to follow my own idea and it didn't work.
The best thing of all is that you can get this pattern free online! Here's the link to it:
I didn't follow the instructions exactly - I decided to leave the tab off and just use the flap as the closure instead. I also bought a magnetic closure snap but I could not figure out how to sew it in (found out later once it was too late) so I just followed the pattern and used hook and loop tape.
I hope if you make this it turns out pretty!
