Round Elements Curvy Clutch

Round Elements Curvy Clutches.

A few months ago Afton at QuiltingMod issued a fabric challenge using Round Elements by Art Gallery Fabrics.  Admittedly I'm not that excited by the fabrics, but told her to keep me as a backup should anyone need to drop out.  Sure enough I was needed, and I decided to make some Curvy Clutches (free pattern!) as future teacher gifts.  

Curvy Clutch #1.

I paired up two fabrics with various trims and zippers from my stash, and picked a coordinating Round Elements fabric for the lining (forgot to get a picture of the interiors!  Darn).

Curvy Clutch #2

I took all the fabrics and materials with me on my sewing-beach vacation in August.  It's a great travel project!  Plus then I was able to do a beach photoshoot with them.

Curvy Clutch #3
For the record, you can make a curvy clutch out of a Fat Eighth of fabric!  It was tight, but my FE were just big enough, hurray!  Many thanks to Afton for supplying the fabrics for this challenge!

Curvy Clutch #4

Next I will get some Starbucks gift cards and other little goodies to put in the bags.  What are you favorite things to give or receive as a teacher??
