convertible clutch

 Vanessa @ Little Big Girl Studio asked her blog readers a couple of weeks ago for sewing pattern testers for a purse that she designed & I volunteered :)     (BTW, how I know Vanessa is she's the one who hosted a dress a girl around the world sew-a-long, she shared a free pillowcase dress pattern & I sewed a couple... Vanessa has great ideas, so I knew her purse would be a good one, too)

I've knitted a purse & sewn simple totes before, but I had never sewn a purse, so I enjoyed the challenge.

What really attracted me to this purse was the shape of it which reminds me a bit of the moutarde bag.

I knew just the right cotton print fabrics to use for this project... a couple of fun new fabrics by JoAnn DS quilt collection: Sugar Creek Whimsy Bouquet Meadow & Picnic Dots Red/Pink.

It's called the convertible clutch, it's a 2-in-1, a tote & a clutch. The PDF pattern is now available to buy, so go check it out !
