The Reunion Clutch

Hi Everone!

Today I'm going to introduce you to my newest pattern - The Reunion Clutch!

The Reunion Clutch is a great addition to any outfit for times when you don't need to carry too much. This Clutch is big enough to fit a large wallet, phone, keys, and other essentials. The Clutch has been designed to be made using Emmaline bags 11" Internal Wire Frames (Style A), but you can also make it without the frames and it still is a beautiful accessory to compliment any outfit.

The finished size of the Reunion Clutch measures approximately 6½” tall x 13½” wide (widest point) x 4” deep (16.5cm x 34cm x 10cm).

How did the Reunion Clutch get its name I hear you ask?  Well, I made the 1st Reunion Clutch to take with me to my 15 yr High School Reunion earlier this month!  So, really there was no other name out there for this great bag :)

Such a pretty clutch!  
It was a big hit amongst some of my highschool chums too :)

Now I have been keeping a little secret from you all...and it's time to tell you...The Reunion Clutch is a FREE Pattern Download available from Craftsy - A little gift from me to you :)

Seeing as many of you may not know me or know the writting style I use in my patterns, I thought I would offer you this free little pattern so you can get to know me!  So, I hope you enjoy getting to know me, my writting style and my patterns :)

Shall we have a look at my fabulous testers versions?

First we have Danielle's from Paiesly Avenue
I just Love the Japanese fabric she has teamed with pink piping and cord!

Jacquie from Pebble Lane Studio, made this lovely version for a friends 40th Bithday!  
I just love the wonder woman lining fabric - don't you?!

This is Janet's version, She had a few things to say about hers!
"What a perfect clutch to use when traveling. It holds the essentials (tickets, wallet, etc) and can be stowed in a tote. I like the way it opens with the frames and is very roomy for the size."

This is Jayne's version and she this is what she had to say about the Reunion Clutch
"All I can say about the pattern is that it is an awesome easy sew".
I really like the Black and White fabric she has used...I wonder what it is...

This is Kathleen's Version, it is so cute! 
I really like the reainbow raindrop fabric she has used here too :)

This is Melisa from Melisa Jane's version.  Such pretty fabric!  
Melisa needs to spend some more time massageing the side of her clutch into shape, 
but you can already see this is going to be one beautiful clutch :) 

Simone made this funky clutch!  She said "This is a cute clutch and a nice quick sew, I really enjoyed this one as I was able to knock it out in a few hours in the afternoon."

Susie from Twirl Girl Boutique made this lovely version.
I really like all the angles and geomectric shapes in this one!

The last 2 versions I'm going to show you have been made without the internal wire frame...

This is Kristina from Harley B's version.
Doesn't this tula pink fabric look fantastic paired with the white pleather!

This is Anna's version, 
She wanted to let you all know that this was a "Fun, quick & fast sew".

Anna has actually tested all 3 of my patterns, and each time she has chosen Hello Kitty fabric!  Here is a picture she sent me of all the bags together:

The Everyday Tote, A Small Ingenious Tote and the Reunion Clutch (minus the frame).
Don't they all look fantastic together?!
