Now that all the outstanding WIPs have been finished or nearly finished, (only two Christmas placemats left to finish hand sewing the binding down), I can start working on my Mum's birthday present. Last time Mum visited I showed her the Rainbow Clutch from the book Handmade Style, and offered to make one for her birthday. Mum wanted it a little more neutral than rainbow however, so from my stash, she picked this Ann Kelle X fabric. and some co-ordinating black Essex linen and a light and dark grey shot cotton. For the lining, I decided to use this pretty floral to give it a more whimsical feminine touch. (This is the last time you will see it now until your birthday Mum.)
The patterns have been traced, now I just need to work out what fabric will go where, cut out the pieces and start sewing.
