Following the opening success of Club CloBird in 2016, it was a no brainer when Karis from CloBird Designs asked me if I’d be interested in participating in the club again this year! I chose to be Miss May again because, well, why not?! 🙂 After a wee bit of pondering and prototyping, I came up with the cute little Classic Clutch.
The Classic Clutch is the second pattern in the Andrie Designs Classic Collection – an ongoing collection of patterns designed to be simple and quick to construct, yet effective and classic in design. They will be patterns designed for all types of makers, whether you make to sell or simply sew for pleasure.
It features box corners, shiny hardware and straightforward construction techniques, as well as simple piecing, a full zipper closure along the top and an inner zipper pocket as well.
The Classic Clutch comes in two sizes – Mini Size and Maxi Size. You can find the Classic Clutch pattern here.
My testing team had a fantastic time playing with this pattern as you will see below. First up we have our gorgeous cover girl made by Karen, whom you can find on Instagram as @karensews.
