Yesterday I realised it was the end of the month……… Shock, horror – I hadn’t done anything about a Monthly Make!
Agog and aghast I trawled the box of kits and small patterns looking for something quick and easy to make in a
late afternoon and found a “Sew Useful Clutch” kit designed by the delightful Rae Telfer (@sugarpluma1 on Instagram)
Everything was included in the kit to I quickly pressed the fabrics, layered them up, then basted them together ready for some quick machine quilting
It was too dark to take pics by the time I’d finished so I took them this morning for you.
Here it is finished
There are two buttons, one for when it’s full and one for not so full
Because I was in a hurry I decided to try machine sewing the binding down. Honestly, by the time I’d unpicked and re-stitched sections that hadn’t been caught I could have hand stitched it twice over!! Never again!
The inside has plastic pockets for storage (don’t look too closely at the binding – there are still places where it hasn’t been caught, but hey, it’s not going into a show to be judged)
Here’s one I made a couple of years ago (and hand stitched the binding down!)
and you can see they hold a lot!
Great instructions, lovely fabric choices and a project to be completed in an afternoon – win, win!
Anybody had time/energy/inclination for a “monthly make” for June??
