A gift

Today I made this clutch as a going away gift for a co-worker. She loves tiny purses, so I thought this would work well for her. I started with a basic zip pouch and sewed across the corners to make a flat bottom. I fused some interfacing to the lining to keep the bag sturdy. Initially I didn’t intend to add the ribbon trim, but I needed to cover a line of stitching that resulted from a moment of craziness when I sewed in the zipper. Then I thought, why not just continue the ribbon into a loop handle and create a wristlet. To give the polka dot design a more modern feel, I added the varied lines of stitching. I hope she likes it!
