You know what that means!!! I can make bags!
I don't know why it took me so long. As I was cleaning up (still relocating the craft room to the new space in the living room), I decided to just finish it. I'm sure it could have been done better, more professionally, but whatever. I gathered the contrast sash, attached the button, tacked down the sash, and added a Velcro closure. That's it.
Holds my phone, some cash, and a pack of gum. Ideal for a night on the town without any kids! As if that would ever happen... I didn't say the clutch was practical! Sure is pretty, though :)
