My creative space: more clutches!

meet me at mike's clutches

When my boss/friend asked me to help her make some gifts for visiting yoga teachers recently, I knew exactly what we should make. The cute-as-a-button vintage clutches from Meet Me at Mike's of course! As you can see here, I've already made a few of these little gems both to keep and to give away.

They sew up pretty quickly, and I think they make perfect gifts. We spent quite a bit of time thinking about the girls we were making them for, and choosing just the right fabrics and buttons for those girls. In the end, I love them and I think the visiting teachers we gave them to loved them as well.

This clutch (above) is lined with denim, which worked really well and makes it look pretty darn cute if you ask me.

We made this one for our pink-loving friend from London.

And this one is a really fun combination of all different fabrics.

  13. Gorgeous little clutches. I LOVE the button on the pink one! I read your comment on Histoire de soie. I don't know of any crafting groups around Sydney that meet, but I'm sure there must be some somewhere. Thinking I should as at my local craft shop. They might know something.
