Today I want to share with you the foldover clutch I made with the LBG Studio's pattern

I really love the leather accents pieces this pattern has, I chose the side rounds as I didn't want to cover toooooo much of this pretty fabric (all the way from Uganda by the way!).  This pattern also has measures to make a small pouch. I choose the full size foldover clutch option.

The pattern features wonderfully written directions, a very clear supply list - including ideal zipper type and length.  I chose the shorter zipper length and the side tabs and the recommended brass zipper - it really does give it the look I wanted! Since the outside fabric is rather subtle in colour I did a pop of colour on the lining fabric!

I also love that there is an interlining so you get that extra bit of stability and also a bit of extra protection for whatever you decide to put inside the clutch. Which is GREAT when you finish sewing this pattern up and realize it is the PERFECT size for your tablet!!!! 

Yes I can now carry my tablet into the coffee shop in a clutch! Beats a giant laptop and bulky bag - right?? Hahaha though, who am I kidding, I haven't ever gone to a coffee shop with my tablet just to chill and be cool sipping on a latte and browsing the net! I am not that cool.

But regardless of my cool factor, this pattern is very fun and well written and will be a go to for the upcoming gift giving season! (which also includes birthdays and 'just because you are awesome' days, and even the 'everyone should get fun mail and not just bills in the post' days.)
