The wee prom purse

A colleague of mine has a daughter who is in high school. In July, this young lady will be attending her first prom at school. My colleague had arranged to have a special dress made for her daughter. She’d asked if I was able to make a little purse or clutch in the same fabric as the dress for her daughter. I gladly said yes.

I used this pattern from Michelle Patterns (formerly keykalou patterns) but I added a ruffle piece to the front flap.



It is small and fits nicely in my hand but it is big enough to hold some keys, a cellphone, maybe some money, some lippy and perhaps even a small compact camera.



I lined it with some black cotton fabric and it has two magnetic snaps to close. There is also a little slip pocket on the inside.



I made a little wrist strap and finally decided to sew on a silver-and-rhinestone flower embellishment as I felt the little clutch needed a bit of bling to make it a teensy bit more special.



What do you think? I hope the young lady will like it.
