Gathered Clutch

June 10, 2011


I’ve been obsessing over a number of cute bag patterns recently, and one of my favorites is Noodlehead’s gathered clutch.

I decided to make one last weekend in natural linen. When I went in search for a contrasting fabric at my local CityCraft store, I came across this print and fell in love:

Isn’t it so happy?! I just love that green. After a couple of hours of cutting and sewing (and possibly the occasional curse word while installing the zipper), my fabric pile turned into this:

What a fun and addictive pattern! I modified it a bit by using thicker fleece interfacing to give the bag some body. I also realized on my next one, I’ll want to shorten the side D-ring holder a bit.

Inside the clutch, I added pockets using a red vintage print I’d picked up at a recent estate sale. It just happened to match the Echino perfectly. Love those coincidences!

I see many more gathered clutches in my sewing machine’s near future (they’d make great bday and Christmas gifts, right?!). Thanks again to Noodlehead for the great pattern.
