So the night before the wedding I remember that I haven’t got a suitable bag to go with my dress, I know I will make a bag, mad scrabble to find suitable fabric in my stash. A bag in the same fabric as the dress and jacket would be just to much. The only suitable fabric is some home dec/curtain fabric.
I thought a clutch bag would be the most suitable and easy option. I made a pattern and cut a front and back and front flap from the curtain fabric and the same in fusible fleece, a front and back in lining fabric and one front flap piece in dress fabric together with a magnetic snap fastener.
Can you see the fabric is not all cut the same way, dots go in different directions – last minute sewing!
The bag looked a bit plain, so I added a fabric flower. I have made these before in felt…
but I didn’t have any felt in a suitable colour so used scraps left over from the dress.
And here you have the last minute wedding clutch bag
