This week, I tested out my newest sewing machine acquirement by making a simple green clutch.
A peek at the inside of the clutch
I downloaded the directions for the clutch for free from BurdaStyle, a sewing Web site where you can get free and paid patterns and share your sewing projects with the community. It's the 1, 2, 3 Sew Pintuck Clutch pattern.
The clutch came out pretty well, considering I haven't sewn for a while, I was using a sewing machine I'm not used to, and the ironing board was out of commission so I had to do my pressing on the floor. ;) (I'll probably use it as a pouch for knitting notions rather than a clutch, though. Shhh.)
More sewing projects are planned for the coming weeks. Wish me luck with my printable pattern adventure. ;)
