Paper Pieced Sunrise Clutch

I am finally able to post my awesome paper pieced sunrise clutch I made for Sara at  I was a tester for Sara and the pattern is easy to follow.  I have paper pieced a little before so I felt confident I could do the paper piecing.  I have never made a clutch other than a simple zipper bags but it came together so easily.  I would suggest any beginner could try this clutch and be successful making it!  I went into my stash for fabrics, I wanted to use yellows, oranges, reds and browns.  I was feeling literal about the "sunrise".  I think it came out well!  

Here is a picture of the clutch

And a view of the top and inside.  

Here is a link directly to the pattern on Sara's website Paper Pieced Sunrise Clutch which is a great deal at only $8.  I used fabrics I already had and the interfacing and zipper cost less than $10.  You can have a pretty new purse or a great gift for less than $20!  Plus I ended up with extra interfacing because I bought the rest of the bolt and made this cute little zip bag for a friend who should be getting it in the mail tomorrow or Saturday! 

Cute polka dot blue fabric with blue roses inside!

I always keep zippers on hand at home for pillows and bags.  My local quilt shop sells zippers for $.50 a piece and I always buy the good ones! 

Thank you Sara for letting me be a tester, I can't wait to do it again!

More to come on the Constellations quilt soon.  It is coming together quickly.

  1. This is a great looking clutch. It is nice that it is different from the simpler patterns, yet not too difficult to make. The colors you chose add to the design.
