Matching sets..

I've been waiting for an excuse to make these little clutch purses ever since I saw this tutorial on the blog "Noodlehead".  I decided after making Caitlin's new bag that one of these clutches would be the perfect accessory for it.  And just to even up the score I made one for her older sister Amelia. These purses came together really easily especially the second time round. The only thing I did different was to add a handle to slip on your wrist.

Amelia's is made in some Heather Bailey 'Pop garden' fabric to match her bigger bag which is an Amy Butler pattern, 'the Sophie carry all'. Amelia wasn't sure at first whether she needed another bag but hey a girl can never have too many bags right?

Each purse has a divider and a pocket on one side divided into 3 smaller pockets for cards, not that my girls have any cards yet but I'm thinking of the future here.
