foldover clutch

I've been sewing up a storm but this little clutch is the only thing I've managed to take pictures of.

Foldover Clutch

Foldover Clutch

The pattern is from Michelle Patterns. I was considering making a few to sell at the craft show NEXT weekend (eek!) but in the end I decided I want to focus my time on more baby quilts and table runners. This was my first time working with faux leather and it was surprisingly easy. I found this stuff at Hobby Lobby and it's nice and thin and flexible so I didn't have to use a special needle or anything. The brass jeans zipper really makes this clutch I think. Oh and I used batting for the interlining which I think gives it good structure and hides any lumps your keys and other items make.
I LOVE this Field Study fabric! It screams Fall to me.
