Bow-Accented Clutch Wristlets Are Here!

I think my favorite thing about reading blogs is
finding a great tutorial.

{It's kind of like a giveaway, where everyone wins the prize!}

Recently I stumbled upon this most fabulous tutorial,
by Whitney of elm street life,
for a Bow Clutch.

I asked Whitney for permission to sell some of the bags I'm making from her tutorial, in my shop on Etsy, eamylove.
She said, "Yes."

{Thank you, Whitney!}

I thought you might like to see what I came up with...so far.
I started with this sweet little cherry polka dot number.

For the interior, I wanted a high contrast, high interest print.
How about black and white, with red all over?

{This makes me think of Minnie Mouse every time I see it.
And then I really want to go to Disney World.}

How fun is that?

For my next bag, I wanted to continue with the picnic feel,
but make it even more charming and dainty.

I can always count on my Darla prints by Tanya Whelan...

Inside, I'm loving the yellow gingham!

I have a collection of colorful zippers for my purse-making pleasure.

{They add some..."zip"...to every purse.}

For the yellow bag, though, I really love the crisp fresh white zipper!

Moving on to my latest bow-clutch purse,
I craved a bit of classic sophistication, so I chose a
black-and-white houndstooth print in a light home dec cotton.

What should I put in the interior this time???

{Obviously it's time to call in some Sis Boom here...}

I love this hot pink print by Jennifer Paganelli,
from her Flower Power line.

Weddings, picnics, a trip to the city,
vacation, or a night out...

these little clutches will go anywhere
and look great with any outfit!

Perfect for summer,
all of these bags have been listed in my shop on Etsy,

Pin It
