I made three handbags as gifts to give at Christmas.
The first was a Jenna Tote bag I made for my mom. The pattern is from SOTAK Handmade. I've made it before (see it here) and love the size and construction. I used pre-quilted fabric remnants from Joann Fabric and webbing for straps. I was really happy with the way this one turned out.
The second bag was this embossed leather clutch for my sister-in-law. I purchased the leather as a remnant from The Leather Hide Store. I love how unique it is. It is a fairly stiff leather, so maybe not ideal for a foldover clutch. The pattern was a basic design I drafted myself. I used fabric from Cultivate by Bonnie Christine for Art Gallery Fabrics for the lining.
The third bag was for another sister-in-law and was another foldover clutch that I designed myself (tutorial anyone?). It is larger in size, has a straighter zipper (instead of the angled edges), and a hand strap. I used Cotton and Steel (Stampede in navy from the August collection) fabric for the exterior and a solid cotton or the lining. This leather is also part of a remnant from The Leather Hide Store. It is super soft and was great for the clutch. Sadly, my picture of it stinks.
