Ruffle Love

Fabric from left: Whimsey, Cotton Blossoms, Bliss, Verna, & Bliss

So, here are our finished clutches, modeled after the Noodlehead Gathered Clutch Tutorial.  We'd seen them popping up around the web and had to give them a try.  While we used the same method, we actually adjusted teh size a bit, since we want to use it more as a mini purse than just a wallet {perfect addition to the diaper bag!}.  So, here are my adjusted measurements for a finished size of 9" wide and  6 1/2" tall.
  • Body: 7 1/2" x 14"
  • Lining: 7 1/2" x 10"
  • Pockets: 7 1/2" x 10"
We used the same measurements for the remaining pieces, but moved the band up from the center a little bit.


My mom also thought to add those cute little flowers from The Quilted Fish, and then we added a yo-yo to the center.  We also put the gathers on the back because they're so cute.  Instead of a divider, we put bigger inside pockets on both sides of the lining, but didn't sew them into the bottom seam {instead we folded them in half and sewed them right sides together, and sewed them into the side seams}.


We enjoyed making them so much, that what started as three soon turned into five!  We are really happy with how they turned out {we may be making some more soon}.  We hope you love them as much as we do {and maybe consider making some of your own too}.  The best part too was that we only used fabric from our stashes {there's still time to link up your stash project too}!
