Win Indygo Junction’s Coronation Clutch Pattern!
It’s been ages since I’ve hosted a giveaway on The Sew Weekly! Well, readers, I have a treat for you: as part of the Indygo Junction Pattern Parade Blog Tour, I’m offering The Sew Weekly readers a chance to win not only the Coronation Clutch pattern, but also fabric!
I have a confession to make: I totally spaced about this being my day for the pattern tour. This morning, after feeling particularly tired with a sore throat, I decided to take a nap. When I awoke and checked my email, I had a friendly little reminder from one of the gals at Indygo Junction that today was Sew Weekly’s day to host the pattern parade tour stop. As part of the tour, Indygo Junction sent me the pattern and fabric in case I wanted to make it up and show all of you. Because I thought I was scheduled for later this month, I hadn’t even started. Doesn’t this sound like every single sewing story I tell?
Well, I jumped out of bed and worked on the bag for about an hour. After a scheduled lunch (where I drank a pomegranate hard cider), I came home slightly buzzed. Despite my slight inebriation, I was able to finish this bag after about another 30 minutes of finishing touches. Now, if that isn’t a testament to an easy pattern, I don’t know what is!
And here’s my take on this super simple, but stylish clutch:
I didn’t take a photo of the inside, but it’s lined with red fabric! Yay red fabric! Personally, I would use a slightly less busy print for the clutch in order to highlight the front pleats and bow. The nice thing about this print is that it hides any intoxication mistakes well. It’s the perfect size for an iPad, by the way.
And, of course, the obligatory big smile photo:
About the Coronation Clutch:
Whether you’re out with friends or on a special date, keep it classy with the Coronation Clutch. This design was inspired by 1950’s style and the fashion trends surrounding the time of Queen Elizabeth’s coronation. The oversized dimensions make this pattern a perfect hand-held compromise between an accessory purse and full-blown bag. There’s plenty of room for all your essentials, but the compact design retains the flirtatiousness of a true clutch. Flap options include a T-shape that can be accented with decorative buttons or a cute, stylized bow. The pattern also includes options for a pleated or plain purse body. Try making this clutch with your favorite home decor fabric or in wools. Carry on!
And now you can win your own copy of this pattern!
To enter, simply leave a comment here stating which view of the purse you’ll probably make up first. That’s it. I’ll randomly select a commenter to receive both the Coronation Clutch pattern plus yardage from the Portobello collection by Alice Kennedy for Timeless Treasures for the outer fabric & basket weave print from the Yard Sale collection by Dear Stella Designs for the lining .
