Saturday morning, I felt an urge to sew. Now, it has been some time since I've sewn something for fun. I've sewed a few samples for my day job here and there...but, I've not made anything for myself since ... I'm embarrassed to admit this, before college. YIKES! I know...to long, right? I used to make clothes for myself all the time. Then, I got a degree in apparel production, got a job in the industry, and well....the joy of sewing sort of vanished. I was worried that would happen. It did. When your spend all day designing and talking about apparel, construction, notions, fabrics, etc. It kind of takes the relaxing part out of the hobby, you know?
I didn't take step by step photos of this process because...like I mentioned....I felt an urge to sew for fun. Instead of trying to give you a detailed description of how I made it...or drawing you technical illustrations. (which I do both for my day job) I am going to spread a little love an leave you with a couple of great tutorials on how to make your own! I hope you enjoy! -Ruth-Simple Fold Over Clutch DIY
