Goldilocks and the Tale of the Clutch Purse

You remember Goldilocks and her adventure with the three bears? I have remembered that tale this week as I learn how to do a clutch purse with a glue-in frame.

The frames came from WhileBabyNaps, she has the best frames and supplies for clutches of all sizes and she is in the US; so the shipping is faster. She also has a great pattern that explains how they are assembled and how to use the glue that she swears by.

I purchased frames, glue and the pattern, then I went fabric shopping in my stash for gift bags.

Without giving a lot away, I have only one picture to show you. The Goldilocks reference is because I had to test what was the best combination of fusible fleece and interfacing. The first bag was too soft and the next too stiff. The third attempt came out just right. Now I have the combination and will make some more bags.

A final update will be shared when I get them all done. Have to get back to it if I expect to get them gifted on time.

I hope that everyone is having a great Autumn~!
