Errr I'm a little late (ok about 4 months late) posting about this. Better late than never I guess so above is a pic of the second leather clutch I made!
I love it for many reasons but especially because of the cute decorative button from Buttons by Lou Lou. I'm annoyed because on a recent outing when I got a tad drunk, I rested it very close to a candle and it burnt a little. The burn mark is on the front no less so I can only hide it by holding my hand over the little burnt patch. *sob* ...
Are there any more clutches to come? Well, maybe. I'm negotiating with my domestic machine to handle the thickness of the leather and the glue. He protests a lot and comes to a grinding halt and stamps his feet (well needle) over and over the one spot and leaves behind a bunch of knotted thread. Nice. I can't unpick the thread and start again either because of the holes it leaves behind in the leather.
The above clutch was made using an industrial long arm machine with heaps of guidance from my teacher.
