Accuquilt and My New Clutch!

Posted on September 13th, by Amy in finished project. 13 comments

I had treated myself to a new die for my Go! cutter about a month ago, but didn’t pull it out until this last weekend finally.  In the midst of making jam, and keeping the laundry moving (mostly) I was inspired to make this little clutch!  I decided I needed a clutch to go along with my bag, because going out for dinner, or running to pick up at school doesn’t always require the entire bag.

I pulled out some recent additions  and my 3″ finished HST die, and cut just enough to make the exterior.  Then had fun laying out the design. I love how the Go! cuts the triangles, ready to sew – no trimming, or marking required!

The trickiest part was making sure I had a mirror image of the lining, but it went together really fast, much like my iPad cover.  For this bag I used decor bond on the exterior, and fusible fleece plus decor bond in the lining; together the interfacings give it a nice shape without being too crisp.

It’s finished with a magnetic snap, and just the right size for my wallet, keys, and phone.  Exactly what I was looking for, and it fits in my big bag no problem!

Fun times at the sewing machine – I love a successful new idea!  Now back to planning the Sewing Summit, and all those details.  Bloggers’ Quilt Festival is also on my mind – who’s ready??

    It looks wonderful. I have been thinking about getting the accuquilt cutter but am still doing research on it. Do you think the cutters will last? I am very interested in the die that does the rag quilt squares and was wondering how sharp they would stay with the flannel or even denim.
