Convertible Clutch

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!

  1. Totally cute, and yes, I remember the days when this would have been the perfect bag to take to a brunch with the girls or out to dinner. Back when I didn’t need to carry several changes of clothes, diapers, wipes, and miscellaneous food products everywhere I went!

    • Those were the days! Now I can’t find a bag big enough to hold everything and usually end up with multiple bags. And still usually forget the things we need!
