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!!!
