Gershwin Clutch from Charlie's Aunt on Etsy. I loved this pattern! The construction was super simple and the instructions were clear and easy! I would definitely buy a pattern from this shop again. The owner was also very pleasant. She has some great and unique vintage style designs.
This bag is for a friend's birthday. I asked her husband for her favorite color and he responded with "yellow, more vintage than bright". The closest thing I could find was duck in a mustardy yellow (none of the pics do the color justice, they are either too dark or washed out). The bag was so easy to make! I was really surprised with how well everything matched up and how easily it came together. The next part was the bow. The construction of the bow was simple. I even taught myself how to sew on buttons with my machine, which saved a lot of time!

The hard part was slip stitching the bow to the front flap of the bag. I am convinced that it would not be a pain in the ass with MOST fabrics, duck, on the other hand was a total BITCH! My fingers were sore for two days from hand stitching that bow onto the bag! It was worth it though. I think the bag turned out great! I hope she likes it.
