Denyse Schmidt clutches

My quilting "to-do" list is looooong, but I just had to crack into some of that gorgeous new Denyse Schmidt fabric from JoAnn's. Couple that with my new obsession with framed purses, and here you have it:

I used the tutorial at U-handbag to make my own pattern, using these cute frames- love the aqua bobbles! In typical OCD style, I bought a mother-load of various frames on etsy here and here, so be prepared to be bombarded over the next weeks until I get this out of my system ;) Remember my embroidery hoops phase?? (here here here here here and here)

I simply love how these framed bags look, and the endless possibilities! These ones are 8 inches wide, the perfect clutch size, or can be thrown like a pouch into a bigger tote.


I lined each with coordinating fabrics from my stash, and included my new labels bought from Mommie Made It.


Not sure yet how I will slice the rest of these babies up, but Denyse did it again- these are truly pretty prints :-)

Lining up at Sew Modern Monday and Fabric Tuesday.

They're adorable! I love the blue one. I've never worked with those type frames...but you did a great job. That red pindot lining is adorable!

Wow. I am seriously impressed.
Seriously.
Full stop.
Not 'period' though because that means something else over here ;-)

Kelli said...

Ok, who do I have to kill to have that navy one???
Wanna do a swap? I may be at a spotlight tomorrow that has the Aus prints???
Oh yeah, I'll love you forever too!

Jenny said...

Those are really cute! I've never made a pouch...but that's tempting. And thanks for sharing the link for your labels!

Yum! These rock Kristie!

Are you selling the navy one? Can I buy it if you are? ;D

Bree said...

LOVE them! I think that plaid print might be my favorite from the line. And those frames are just perfect with it. If everybody else wants the navy one, I want the plaid one. ;)

SUPER cute!

Amy said...

I love them! Is there a way we can do a three way swap with Kelli? I'd love the Aus prints, and your clutches! Those frames are so great but look intimidating to me!

Shay said...

Is there anything you cant do? I love those little purses.

Im completely bag and purse challenged so if you decide to get a second job selling purses count me in!

Very cute! That navy print is my favorite. Did you use any interfacing in these guys?

Too cute! I have always wanted to work with these types of frames but I'm to chicken.

JuneBug said...

Wonderful use of the DS fabric!!! Totally inspiring. I might have to jump on this framed clutch bandwagon ;)

Sara @ Sew Sweetness said...

Cool! I love your clutches! I have some metal frames I bought a few years ago for small coin purses, did you find that they were easy to assemble? I guess I was scared of using them for some reason, lol

littlemissmk said...

wow- i love these!

Cathy said...

so chic!

Paula said...

These are awesome!

April @ Sewing Novice said...

Could you email me more information about your labels? I am looking into getting some but can't spend a ton of money. I guess my questions are...are they fabric or plasticy (is that a word)? Does the quality seem to be excellent? Is there bleeding of the ink? Thanks so much!

I am LOVING all of these!
