You may have noticed that I updated my etsy shop. Besides PDF sewing patterns, I am offering a few handmade items. This past week I listed several clutch bags. They are fashioned in the classic zipper foldover style. Several months ago, a dear friend called and told me that she was moving to Washington, DC for a new job. And, would I like to buy her considerable inventory of high-end decorator fabric. (Well, of course I would! ) It took me a few trips back and forth to get it all home then a week or two to catalogue and organize it.
Months later, I am finally putting it to good use. These purses are just a sampling of the great fabrics that are in my collection. More styles and options to come.
I have been busy working on yet another sewing pattern. The Aster Foldover Clutch. Yes, the very same clutch that I am offering readymade. Next week, I hope to have an e-book, step-by-step sewing pattern ready for testing. The full pattern will be offered for sale as a PDF download in my etsy shop. Don't worry, the pattern is written as a teaching pattern with step-by-step colored pictures and text.
