Flowers and Butterflies Clutch
Do you read Mollie Makes? It's one of my absolute favorite craft magazines. The most recent issue had this amazing clutch project in it, so I whipped one up!
I made a few adjustments to the pattern. I added magnetic snaps and instead of adding a trigger with a leather pull to the zipper, I inserted a little wrist wrap.
Fabric: straight from my Aunt Maude's stash
Leather: scraps courtesy of my friend Jessica, left over from the Leather Craft Party
Zipper and magnetic snaps: Joanns
It was my first time sewing with leather on my machine, and I was worried it would be a beast. It wasn't so bad! And why is the sound of the needle hitting leather so satisfying?
Have you ever made something with leather? I still have plenty of scraps, so send your ideas my way!
