The Bow Clutch

This project was a special one. I wanted to gift my roommate who has been with me for almost three years now something self made on her birthday. I had come across this tutorial two years ago and it had been on my to do list ever since. So, I thought of presenting it to her as a special gift.

It is a step by step bow clutch sewing tutorial by Whitney Newby from Elm Street Life. She has an amazing blog. She has made this tutorial quite easy with the step by step visuals. Also, this tutorial can be great for beginners who don't know how to stitch a zip for a bag with lining. Do check out the link for the tutorial - here.

My color inspiration for this clutch were the pictures below. My friend loves orange color, so the main body color had to be it. But, combining it with green was inspired.

Here is the picture of the bow clutch that I stitched for her.

Thanks to the step by step visuals, I could make this clutch with ease and quickly too. The birthday girl loved it :)

Until next time,
