I am finally able to post my awesome paper pieced sunrise clutch I made for Sara at Sewsweetness.com. 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.
