After I had sold these 2 clutches I made here, I thought I had better make a couple more for my VivoCity craft market which is coming very very soon at the end of this month.
Unfortunately I was scatterbrained and in my recent trip to top up my supplies, I forgot to buy the magnetic snaps. I don't want to go back to the supplies shop again so.... But I did have one pair of snaps left.
Honestly I could use any of my fabric to make this clutch because this clutch doesn't require any specific quality of fabric - just nothing too thin. I decided to pair a cutesy fabric from my stash with a red cotton drill.
This is a generic brand fabric. When I first bought it I thought the animals were in little houses. Yes, I have bad eye-sight. When I examined the illustrations closely I was delighted to see the animals were in little trailers, much like what I imagine circus animals would be housed and transported in. Am I right? That's how circus animals are moved around. In cute little trailers.
This fabric looks a little like linen cotton but the texture tells me it's not. And all those "dirty spots"? By golly. I do believe it's calico!
I had originally planned on making 2 clutches to do an encore of naughty bags. I even picked out a song Unchained Melody à la Ghost the movie. Lucky for you, I ran out of magnetic snaps!
Flying solo. So lonesome ah?
Later my friends.
