Amy Karol's Artsy Clutch

I made the Artsy Clutch from Amy Karol's Bend the Rules Sewing while visiting SoCal, staying with my friend Linda:

I really loved how simple and quick this was to make yet it has a quirky elegance to it:

Nice enough for a gift, right?

I made another one but instead of flannel between the outside and lining as directed I tried fusible fleece.  The fabric pairing didn't quite go, but I wanted to see if the fleece was a better feel:

The flannel definitely had a softer feel, while the fusible fleece had a stiffer feel but held it's shape a bit more firmly.  I couldn't say which one was better because I liked the feel and fall of each in different ways.

Any opinion?


  1. def the firmer one for a clutch. did you see the diaper clutch i made? same idea just different closure!
