Amy's Pleated Clutch

I've had Amy Butler's book, Style Stitches, sitting on my shelf for quite some time. (Yeah.... the copyright date will tell you I'm long overdue.)  I've been wanting to make Amy's bags for sooooo long but it seems I've always had too many other projects going on until now. From the go...let me say Amy Butler's patterns get a typical review of 5 stars and I can totally see why! These directions were simple to follow and in the end... an adorable wristlet. Of course, I'm already debating on how to manipulate the pattern for a different look. (Gotta love my mom for some good tips.)

I only did pleats on one side. The reason... I wasn't sure about how they'd look.
Needless to say, the next bags will be pleated on both sides!

The interior is finished completely showing no open seams. I love it!

What have I turned my attention to now you ask? Well, has anybody tried combining two different patterns for a totally different dress? I thought I'd give it a try in hopes that the image in my head turns out to be a new creation! Here's a sneak peak!

Happy Trails till next time!
