New Project: Bow Clutch

I finally finished my clutch! It’s made of a red linen with a cotton navy blue hounds tooth lining. There’s a few things I’m not happy about, such as the the bow which isn’t completely straight. I also had a hard time with the zipper, but overall I’m happy with the end product.

I wanted to enter the Sew Sweetness Purse Palooza 2012, but any bag that is entered needs to be made between June 4 and July 11. I started the bag back in May so I don’t think it qualifies. Too bad!

However, check out my mom’s purse that she entered. I think it turned out really cute.
