Gathered Clutches

29 Nov

I’ve been trying to get a head start of holiday sewing and knitting and am determined to try and make at least half of the presents I give away this year. Earlier this month, I started to make these gathered clutches using some scraps and decor weight fabric from my stash.  My intention was to make enough to give to H & J’s various teachers.

These were so fun to make, and I just couldn’t seem to stop myself.  I have made 8 so far, and have fabric cut for 4 more.

For a few of them, I added two little pockets perfect for holding credit cards or lip balm.

I kept the first one I made since it is the perfect size to hold my wallet and phone.
