These little clutch purses use a 6″ x 3″ frame. The designs and pattern are from “Handbags 2: Designer Knockoffs” by Eileen Roche and Nancy Zieman. Nancy Zieman died almost 2 years ago now. For those of us that grew-up sewing, many of us learned from Nancy. Her show, “Sewing with Nancy” can still be viewed on YouTube Eileen Roche was frequently a gust on Nancy’s Zieman’s show and is the owner of Dime Designs. In addition to their book, their were 2 episodes on Sewing with Nancy, for their designer handbags.
Below are pictures of the clutches I am currently making. Note the ribbon accent on the clutch purse. It is a quarter inch ribbon that is edged stitched in the hoop and then a candlewicking stitch is added down the center of the ribbon.
The purse, which I have made several times, has an outside pocket with a beautiful scalloped edge. I have the purses as gifts and also donated to charity auctions.
