Sugar & Spice Gathered Clutch

riley blake gathered clutch
I am so excited when I stumble upon super crafty blogs, in particular ones that showcase free sewing tutorials!  Anna’s blog Noodlehead has this awesome tutorial for a gathered clutch.  You know I have a very big weakness for purses and now when I find some fabulous fabric, I can make my own!!  When I got my sewing machine serviced a few months ago, I perused the fabrics and found these fun red, turquoise, pink & white fabrics called Sugar & Spice by Riley Blake.  Once I made the clutch, I felt like it needed something more, so I grabbed some of my turquoise mix buttons by Gina K and added 3 to the front, I think it makes all the difference in the world!  So much that a few weeks ago when we went to our friend’s 85th birthday and I was using it for my essentials, several of the ladies there fell in love with it and asked if I would be willing to make some to sell them.  So now I have bought more fabrics (not the same though) and I am working on getting a stash together to sell.  IMG_2144
Here is a picture of the inside, where you can see 2 more of the fabrics I used for the lining, card holders and divider pocket.  I will share more that I made real soon. 
Thanks for stopping by!  Hope you have a fabulous week! 
I am linking up to these crafty parties to share what I made!
