I have made 3 versions of the Clutch featured in Threads mag 169 Nov13
Designed by Don Morin of
The red version is silk lined with a zany cotton print, using light weight fusible interfacing & Vliesofix. I felt this was too light and floppy so I tried
An embroidered heavy cotton lined with a bias printed cotton, using a stiff interfacing & 2 layers of Vliesofix.
The gerbera cotton print uses a bag wadding from Ingrid's with Vliesofix.
The second and third versions definitely have more body suited to a clutch, but are not as neat to sew.
