I love and am obsessed with Noodlehead's Lil Cutie Pouches, just I thought I would try an upgrade an work on making some of her gathered clutches too. After a few tries, I feel like I have settled on my method of putting them together. They're a great showcase for fabric combos and they are a little more sophisticated than the cuties.
I had a very specific goal in mind when making these... one for a stylish friend from high school, who happens to love the color orange. For some reason she popped into my head when I first started making these, so the last one I did was for her:
And, as with the cuties, the stack of clutches I made has already been given away for holiday gifts! These have been a great test run for my possible soon to be etsy shop (which is still percolating in my little brain...)
