Elizabeth's clutch


Immediately upon the settlement of the Nuno magazine on my computer and at the first thrown glimpse at the beautiful clutch I knew I will be making it soon. I did and I love it!

Elizabeth has used a lovely vintage linen to make it. Its shape makes it extraordinary and appealing. The pattern instructions are well written and one can make it only by looking at the drawing.

For this clutch I used upholstering fabric I had in my stash (which I adore and also used to adorn my blouse below)


lined it with cotton and added a metal clasp. I think this would be my favourite clutch for the upcoming spring and summer.

That clutch turned out really lovely. You have inspired me to make one, the lining and clasp are such professional touches!
PS You are absolutely gorgeous in that photo, brings Elysian Fields to mind - I think I am channeling Sting...

Beautiful! Kisses.

Your clutch is lovely!

I find it very reassuring when I see someone else use a pattern I've drafted (particularly if the construction is a bit tricky). Part of me always worries that I messed up somewhere or wasn't clear enough and I'm unwittingly subjecting someone else to a frustrating experience. So thank you!

May I post a photo of it on the Nuno blog?
