I’m excited to have a fun quick-sew project in the special 2015 Holiday issue of QuiltingArts Magazine that’s perfect for gifting or keeping!
My project can be found on page 80 and it’s called the Inn Street Clutch, named after a street in the historic downtown Newburyport, MA. I was inspired to make this modern clutch with handmade bias tape embellishment by the design of my daughter’s crisscrossing leather straps on her Sunday shoes, and by the recent QuiltCon bias tape challenge.
I had a lot of fun with this pattern and actually made three versions. They all use Robert Kaufman Essex Linen for the exterior and Doe by Carolyn Friedlander for the bias tape and linings. Zippers are from Zipit on Etsy. The interfacing is HeatnBond Fusible Interfacing Craft Extra Firm.
Forgive me, I took a couple of extra pictures…
Do you think that they would be fun to make? I would love to see your version!
