I’ve been waiting for the Stitch Winter 2015 magazine to come out for months. I’m happy to announce that I have a project in the magazine.. A denim clutch!
My project is featured in the “Handmade Denim” section with full instructions at the back of the magazine.
The fabric is from Crossroads Denim and designed by the ever talented Amy Barickman of Indygo Junction. Amy also has 2 denim projects in the magazine, a pillow and a tote. If you are looking to sew with something different – try denim! The color selection at Crossroads Denim is amazing. I had a hard time picking out what combination to use because the colors were bright, fresh and modern.
The clutch was a lot of fun to develop. I wanted to bring different elements into a fairly basic pouch design. Notice the half square triangles? I’m addicted to these guys. I thought adding a row at the front and back would give the pouch a little southwest flair… Using denim fabric for the exterior gives the clutch an on-trend, feel. Denim also makes the pouch extra sturdy and versatile. Lastly, a metal zipper gives it a professional touch
I’ve already made a second clutch in a different color combination and stash it full of my daily essentials. It’s the perfect busy girl pouch – just grab, fill and go.
That’s it for today. Happy Sewing.
