I’ve been busy making a couple of my clutch bags design using some gorgeous duchesse satin. This has to be one of thee most sumptuous fabrics for clutch bags; it’s just lovely. I’ve made this in a smart navy duchesse satin before but decided to try it with brighter satins. I’ve used the red fabric with a previous bag (the Dorothy on the Vintage Bags page), but this was the first time I’d used this rich purple – and I LOVE it! (although, that might have something to do with the colour reminding me of a certain brand of popular chocolate…. yum!).
I’ve added another couple of photos to the Clutch Bags by Ellie page (under the Handbags by Ellie header), but here’s a preview. Click on the gallery below to enlarge and scroll through and enjoy having a browse….
