I've never sewn a zipper in. I've never lined anything. I've never sewn a purse. So, let's just say that this little clutch project was very educational. I had grand plans of hand embroidered sparrows in the corners of the clutch but after I took a wrong turn with the zipper installation, I decided to just finish the project and started re-evaluating my strategy.
I do love the color combinations (plum zipper + mustard fabric = breathless me).
I learn the best by trial and error. I've always been that way. I am excited to start another clutch tomorrow...this time armed with new blueprints and a bit of experience.
