Modern GIrl Clutch Tutorial »
InstructionsThis is such a fun project. The purse turned out very cute. The only thing I did different is I improvised as the original pattern calls for 1/8 inch elastic, I made my own closure. I also made my pocket to fold then sew it closed. I also had a little trouble fitting the purse opening around my sewing machine. I just hand stitched the opening by hand.

What was your inspiration?
I've been watching Whitney Sews video tutorials on You Tube and love her projects. She is now a designer for Pellon products. I saw this tutorial and wanted to try it. It's my first clutch! :)
What are you most proud of?
That i was able to finish it from beginning to end and was able to improvise the closure.
