We are adding some serious hardware to our clutch bag and purse making section by way of these lovely metal framed clutch bag purses which are kept closed by a criss-cross clasp that makes a whisper of a click when closed. And to make sure it has that extra bit of kick, you get to choose from high quality (and a bit quirky) American fabrics to make sure that the bag is uniquely your own creation. This is a great craft to learn if you want to be able to make something that just adds a bit of pop to your bag repetoir or want to be able to give a fab gift.
