I hope you are having a good Saturday. I got my odd jobs done for the house early and then went to work in the studio. I ended up working all day on a new clutch design. I wanted to make one that didn't have the metal frame. I finished the design, made a pattern and then made a sample. It still needs a little tweaking but for the most part it is a pretty good. Here is the new handheld clutch.
What do you think? This one has a flap with a magnetic closure. I still made it so it has a flat bottom and can stand up by itself. I decided to add a butterfly to this clutch, so I could complete my butterfly for the day as well. Here is butterfly #292.
A close up of the little butterfly. It is six layers of fabric stitched together. I decided to bead the center of the body. There is one row of size 11 seed beads, surrounded by size 15 seed beads. I hope you like this butterfly and the new clutch.
That's all for me. We gave Molly tickets to Alton Brown, from the food network, for her birthday. The show is tonight. She wants to be a chef, and enjoys watching Alton Brown and many of his shows. I am not sure what this live show will be like, but hopefully she will enjoy it.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great evening.
