HI! I made a bag/clutch!
My sister -who is way more fashionable than I- asked me to make her a clutch. She was very specific about how it would look and wanted it to basically be a knockoff of this:
This is a pouch from American Apparel that is selling right now for $68. It’s showing up all over fashion bloggy land and my sister has it on her radar but doesn’t want to pay $68 for it. I would actually kick her if she DID pay that for a zippered pouch, but that’s just me.
Soooo this was my creation:
WARNING: I thought it would be a good idea to take pictures of the purse with my iphone. My apologies for crappy photos. I promise to get better with time.
I also lined it with green satin fabric and added a couple of necessary pockets. I’m pretty stoked about how it turned out!
aaand a pic of the happy “customer”…
Now. I’m the first to admit… I don’t know squat about fashion, really. I have to learn it from fashion blogs and cute dressing people like my sister. So when it comes to this particular “purse” I don’t see the big deal.
:shrugs: It’s a zippered pouch. But apparently American Apparel is selling the crap out of these things so whatevs. It was fun to make and I am definitely making another one soon.
