“Falling Leaves” autumnal clutch purse

Here is the clutch I have been working on. This came together without any problems, except at the end. I had to go through a lot of “thickness” with the needle in order to attach the lining, and do the final top stitching. The machine I have been using is just not cut out for such things. I can’t wait to get a new one!!
This purse now completes the outfit that was inspired by my “A Stroll through the park in Autumn” Polyvore set. I have re-posted a picture of it at the bottom here.

I am now about to work on another outfit that was also inspired by a set that I created on Polyvore. I am making a stripe cowl neck top and a british tan colored “throw on” jacket. I call it “throw on” because it is on the casual side, and it is something I would “throw on” to run errands, or sit around the bon fire with my family and roast marshmallows!
Here is the set that inspired this up and coming creation….

I even have some red booties to match! I just need a cute red hat, and a bag to go with!

So back to cutting out my outfit I go!
Until next post,

  1. Thank you Katho πŸ™‚ For this I did not draft the pattern myself. Instead I used a pattern I have had for a long time. I had always wanted to use it, so finally I did. πŸ™‚ It is from Vogue pattern # 8527. You might be able to find this pattern on Etsy or Ebay if you wanted to give it a try, as it is out of print.
