What materials did you use? I raided my sisters fabric collection for this unusual corduroy fabric. The interior is a cotton/poly print. Other materials include zippers, metal clasp and oval ring.

What are you most proud of? This purse can be filled with all the necessities, but is small and can hang off of a wrist. It leaves the hands free if necessary.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? The choice of fabric is what makes this sporty or more formal. i customized the interior to suit what I like to have as basic necessities, but this can easily be altered.

This is stunning. Talk about elegant. This IS elegant.

Great clutch! Beautiful choice of fabric and hardware. I noticed you are in Calgary, where do you find your hardware for the bags you make?

Thands ctegart...! The clasp on the purse came from Tandy Leather factory - they have a lot of purse hardware. For things like d-rings and magnetic snaps, I go to Paccana Enterprises. They are a wholesaler, so some things only come in quantities of a 100. They also carry sewing supplies like needles, thread and quilters' rulers at really good prices.

Thanks! I'm working on various prototypes but haven't got the patterns in published format yet. This one is almost there.
