Today's Project: The Grab and Go Clutch



In between the chaos of moving my studio home, I'm making a little bag for my friend's Mother-in-law. She asked for a clutch, and I immediately knew what pattern I'd use - The Grab-And-Go Diaper Clutch - which is for more than just diapers! 

This is a great pattern that is moderately easy to follow - perfect for someone who is ready for something a bit more challenging. Although I used my Loopy Lanyard technique to make the strap and made the inside flap out of the same fabric as the exterior, I pretty much stuck with the pattern, which is highly unusual for me! 

I really like how the bag goes together, especially the technique for sewing the lining. It was a little counter intuitive and something that I had never done - the lining is sewn into the bag so it doesn't lift out. But I managed to figure it out.

When I asked about fabric, my friend said, "Something bright. Her favorite colors are pink and yellow." So after texting some pictures of fabric, she decided on this one! The bag turned out great.

The pattern also includes directions for a quilted changing pad. I recommend that you try it out - but do a quick run through before using some good fabric. The final few steps can be a bit confusing.


Happy sewing!
