convertible clutch/2 in 1 bag pattern giveaway!!!

September 28, 2011

this giveaway is now closed, sorry!  :(


I was so excited when Vanessa sent me her convertible clutch pattern to test out!!  I had seen sneak peaks of it while she was working on it and kept bugging her to finish it so that I could make one for myself!  :)

It does not disappoint!!!  The shape is fantastic!!  It's modern in a way that's both fashion forward and classic at the same time.

I made mine out of  two prints from Anna Maria Horner's Loulouthi line.  The exterior print is very large scale but I really love how it worked on this bag.



Each side looks so different and I love both.  You can then fold the bag down and you have a clutch!!!  The handle opening is large enough that you can slip it over your wrist too if you need both hands.


Genius!!  The size is great, large enough to hold all of the necessities but not so big that it will be heavy or hard to hold.  The pattern includes a patch pocket to keep a few items separate.  It was really easy to follow and well written.  She includes so many photos which always helps too!

I LOVE the handle!!!  It's a great way to add a second print onto your bag and is totally different from any other handle that I've ever put on.  If you make the bag, I would totally recommend that you follow Vanessa's suggestion and add the extra rows of topstitching.  It really makes the bag look so much more professional.

SO...  Vanessa has graciously offered to give away a copy of her convertible clutch pattern to one of my lucky readers!!!  Woo hoo!!!

In order to enter, please leave a comment on this post letting me know what fabric you would make your convertible clutch / 2 in 1 bag out of if you win!!!  PLEASE make sure that I can get in touch with you if you win!!!!  I will choose a winner randomly on Monday morning.  Good luck!!!!

  2. Amy, for some reason I have always been drawn to the Ty Penington fabrics, any of them in the chartreuse colourway. I don't have any, but if I were going to make this clutch, that is what I would hope to use.

  15. Amy, it's amazing how we may like the same fabrics! I am also a big fan of Anaa Maria Horner's designs, but unfortunately it's not available for selling in my county, so I would just probably use some Brazilian national fabric in some happy colors! Love, Cami

  26. Thank you for the opportunity! I would totally use some of the amazing vintage fabric I've found. Oh, the possibilities! froog.and.doog(at)gmail(dot)com

  27. The clutch is awesome! I was thinking Around Town by Jenni Calo would be a fun fabric to use. Also Hometown by Sweetwater might be fun too! The Stop Sign fabric, that's the one with the names of the towns. Of course it's a small print and it might be busy, but I'd love the chance to find out! Maybe use one of the coordinating polk-dot fabrics for the handle!

  28. I love your fabric choice for this bag. Actually, I've loved all the versions I've seen on various blogs. The pattern seems like a great vehicle for displaying fabrics nicely. I have some Jay McCarroll 'singing forest' which would work well.

  29. I've been eying this pattern. I also adore AMH's Loulouthi, but I've already made myself a bag with it. I'd need to look for something a little more wintry.

  30. I LOVE this bag, and I'm not a girl who usually gets excited by bags! Daren't wait to see if i win the comp - I went straight over and bought it anyway!

  31. What a great pattern! We have just got the Stampin' Up! fabric in the UK, so I would use that, probably the Timeless Portrait pattern.

  40. I love this design, doubt I could keep myself to 1 bag if I had the pattern. I would have to make one to match each of my fav outfits.

    I would have to go with the Black and white Lables & Demask from "Lost and Found" from Riley Blake Designs. Black and white goes with everything.
