The cutest clutch

Since completing my first ever dress (Simplicity 2591), I grew in confidence and decided to give something different a go. With lots of birthdays coming up, I decided to put my new skills to the test and make my friends some unique gifts. I had previously bought some amazing vintage-inspired fabric from ebay, but they were just fat quarters so I knew I needed something small to work on.

Pip Lincolne's Meet me at Mike's came to the rescue, with the cutest little pattern for a small clutch bag. Although it was quite tricky following some of the instructions, once I figured it out, I had so much fun choosing the fabrics and buttons. I'm pretty sure my friends liked them too, or else they did a good job at pretending. I'm looking to adapt the pattern to create different designs...more pictures will follow if I succeed!
