Declare War on the Ho-Humm Handbag!


So I loved the "Dion Date Night Clutch" so much I made another one this afternoon after getting back from the post office. The Bird fabric I got from Purl Patchwork and I dyed the blue interior all by myself. You can check it out on my ETSY Shop...the link is at the bottom of the bag description.

This is a little date night clutch for just the essentials. I have created a coordinating slender wallet to assist stylish minimizing.

The interior of the bag is my own hand dyed blue linen and the exterior of the bag is a Linen/cotton print from Kokka featuring tiny birds balancing on flowers. The entire bag has been quilted in various freehand styles and a small flower is secured to the bag with a shell button.

The flower petals and bottom of the bag are a piece of ACU (Army Combat Uniform) that was worn in Baghdad by one of the finest officers the US Army has in it’s vast leadership arsenal (my own opinion, of course).
