I made a clutch purse for going out- I wanted something just the right size for my phone, cards, etc. A few weeks ago I came across a bag of soft leather scraps in the op-shop, and cut down to size, leather proved to be a good base for the purse. It's sturdy and strong, and I like the contrast it provides with the retro fabric.
I fastened the whole thing with a pearly metal snap- the first time I've used these before, and they're pretty nifty. Of course I couldn't stop at one clutch (three is a pleasing number, I feel) - isn't that geometric 1980s fabric one-of-a-kind?
