Yesterday I saw my chance and I grabbed it. The studio computer was at the computer doctor (very timely, on my one child-free day in a week when I have half a ton of patternmaking and instructions to do... couldn't work on anything at all). So all I could do was SEW.... what a shame, huh?
This is my Baguette pattern - made as a clutch.
The main fabric is from the Al Fresco range by Marcus Fabrics, and I think the other is a Baum Wyndham "Rhapsody" print (but don't quote me on that!).
So.... where's that convertible I was talking about...?
It becomes a handbag with a clip-on chain! I used small swivel hooks and silver nickel purse chain. Easy-peasy.
But that is not all... Oh no, that is not all I can do, said the cat! (Ok, I read too many Dr Suess books!).
It can also be a wristlet with a clip-on strap.
How...? I'm going to write a tutorial for this and a few other tricks I photographed while making this bag.
Stay tuned.... (I also have to write some instructions and do a spot of patternmaking...).
