The Clutch Wallet – Is it a Hit or Miss? Fab or Drab?

The hand-painted fabric and decorative stitches add a creative touch to this unique design.  The clutch wallet gives you two uses in one small package. I think it’s perfect to carry alone, and fits nicely inside of your tote bag.  What do you think?  Is it a Hit or Miss? Fab or Drab?


I combined three textile painting techniques to create the fabric design.


 I used two complementary fabrics to add more interest, and cut quarter and half-moon circles.

20150119_152821I thought that the cut would also add interest to the flap.

20150129_192656There are four credit card slots, room for your dollars, a lipstick pocket, cell phone pocket, and additional room for keys, gum etc…

20150129_19304620150129_193729I love it when everything is organized in my clutch!

What do you think? Is it a Hit or Miss? Fab or Drab?

      Thank you! I agree that designing fabric takes more time. The drying time takes the longest . 😂 Thank you so much for your feedback.

    Hit, definitely. Not so brightly and definitely colored that you can only use with a very few items. It also will not show wear as quickly either.
