Just like last year I made my sister a bag for her birthday. This is the convertible clutch from Vanessa Hewell at LBGstudio. This pattern was part of a pattern bundle I purchased last year. I currently don’t have much use for this type of bag, as I’m usually toting around too much stuff. But I figured that she could use this bag for weekend brunch and other such outings.
The exterior fabric is from IKEA, given to me by a friend. The top handle is Kaufman linen in steel and the interior is a green cotton from my stash. The pattern is designed to be either used as a full-size bag (as above), or folder over to make a clutch:
I had a few construction issues due to not reading the directions carefully. I’d suggest reading through the entire instructions and then actually following them…
But all in all it came out just fine. I added a few treats inside and sent this cross-country. Happy Birthday to a wonderful sister and aunt!
