Gather Me Up Clutch

Gain pattern inspiration for the Gather Me Up Clutch - Andrie Designs

Back in 2015 I designed the Gather Me Up Clutch pattern. It was cute, and had lots of options, but after reading through the pattern again recently it dawned on me that it was rather ‘novice’ and needed a major makeover right away! So, I got to work and pretty much re-wrote the whole thing. […]
