Custom II

These two may look identical, but they are definitely one of a kind.

Tabitha ordered these for her bridesmaids Fallon and Sarah. These clutches have a 10 " flexible spring-steel hex opening, are 12" long at the base and are 4" deep.

Tabitha chose a beautiful deep magenta brocade with gold floral accents, and the pattern design was my mother Gwen's brilliance at work. The floral pattern on the brocade enabled for a distinctly separate piece (one pale green floral, the other a dusty pink) on the bottom of each clutch so Fallon and Sarah could tell their bags apart.

Custom I

The following clutches were made for Becky S. to give as a gift to her bridesmaids.

The outer fabric is a heavy espresso satin, while the lining is a cotton print from Anna Maria Horner's collection.

The clutches are 11 inches wide, and is 8 inches deep when opened. When closed they are 6 inches tall and close with matching vintage buttons and crocheted loops. I included crocheted loops on the sides, as Becky is quite the bead artist (I have a gorgeous triple strand bracelet she made me in hues of varying green and it's lovely) and she wanted a way to attach a beaded handle.
