I was super excited to sew up the March bag in the Big City Bags SAL and was hoping to sew up two of them. Well that didn't happen,but I did manage to get one sewed up!
My version of the Merengue Clutch... I love the clutch,but for some reason my gathers just did not turn out right :( They are way too big and when I sewed them they flattened out. I did like it a bet better after ripping out the two lines of top stitching across the center of the bag...
This is a rather large clutch with plenty of room to hold everything you might need. This is the first "bag" in the book that does not include pockets,probably because it is a clutch and not a bag. It is certainly big enough to add a small pocket if one wanted to.
Not sure if I will make another one,because I am not really happy with how the gathers came out. Any tips from you guys/gals on how to fix my flat gathers?
