New month, new project! Time to pick out fabrics for the Style Stitches bag this month. May's bag is the perfectly pleated clutch, and honestly I wasn't that thrilled about making this one, but toward the end of last month I started to get a little excited to make all those pleats! I've done pleats before, but not this many, and not over an entire surface. It is quite a neat effect.
Below are the fabrics I have chosen to make this clutch. The hot pink, an Art Gallery print, is going to be the main body (the pleated part.) The fabric to the right is an Amy Butler print from Soul Blossoms, it will be the accent fabric. The greenish colored fabric all the way to the left is some funky polyester blend stuff that I will be using as the lining. I have decided to make the medium size, it seems the most versatile for me. The best part? I do believe that I have a fabulous broach to accent the bag and these fabrics! Then my clutch can be "so pretty" just like the picture above!
