Rainbow Clutch

This month it's Deb's turn to receive pressies in our birthday club swap.  I made her the Rainbow Clutch from Anna Graham's beautiful book 'Handmade Style'.
The front pocket is paper pieced, making it the perfect spot to include some favourite fabrics. I started with the Lizzy House Twinkle Twinkle fabric in burgundy for the main part of the pouch, then added coordinating prints from Lizzy House, Anna Maria Horner and Bonnie Christine. 

There are several different techniques to try in this pattern; paper piecing, magnetic snap installation and two different zipper installation methods. I really appreciated the tips on magnetic snap and zipper installation, both are techniques that I don't use very often so I'm always happy to have lots of detail to remind me what I'm doing. My zipper end tabs have never looked so tidy!.

This is my first finish from Anna's book, I have a feeling there will be many more!


  1. I am thinking this may be a birthday idea for my Mum. Loved the fabrics you used in Deb's one.

  2. So pretty! I'm not really the clutch type as I always seem to carry a lot of stuff around but I could be tempted to try one :-)

  3. This turned out really sweet!

  4. so good Rachel! Love those colors so so much. beautiful! And thank you for sharing!! :)

  5. I was given this book for my birthday and that clutch is the first thing on my list! Yours is gorgeous! love the colours and fabric combo's - beautiful result.

  6. It is pretty. I'm looking forward your next projects :)
