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. Yes, you read that right, I re-wrote the WHOLE pattern….

It’s taken a while, and been through testing more than once to iron out the creases (yes, pun intended haha), but I’m beyond thrilled to let you know that the Gather Me Up Clutch pattern is now easier than ever to follow, and a MUCH simpler sew as well! Hooray!

Several of the key features have remained, including the darling gathered outer front, outer back zipper pocket, and the wrist and cross body strap options as well, just to name a few. My testing team have had an absolute blast with this pattern, with several of them making multiple clutches in different styles and fabrics as you’ll see below!

You can find the Gather Me Up Clutch pattern here and without further ado, I would like to re-introduce you to the Gather Me Up Clutch!

    Is the only difference between the original and the new pattern easier directions? I have the original and am wondering why I should purchase the revised, thank you
