Despite my numerous distractions, the Ruthie Clutch was a success!
I used the kit as intended, with one small change. While I had enough fabric to line the bag with the main exterior fabric, I realized that if I swapped out the lining for something else, I would have enough of this lovely print left for another project! How exciting, right?! So instead of lining the bag with the exterior fabric, I swapped it out for some light blue cotton I had laying around. I think it's a nice contrast!
The bag is a cute shape, a practical size, and a smart design. I can't wait to use this pattern again and again!
