|Brynwood Needleworks - Grab And Go Cork Clutches - Front and Back|
I worked on another Christmas gift project yesterday. I'm making simple cork clutches in various colors of cork fabric. Theses are two I made in natural cork. The labeled side is actually the back of the clutch, and the fronts are plain.

The interior is a gold print fabric. These zippers are really neat. They look like metal, but they're plastic. I always seem to catch my nails on metal zippers, so I'm no fan, but these plastic ones are my favorite. The hardware is antique brass.

The next ones I make are going to have fabric combinations on the exterior, too, but there will be more that are all cork - but in different colors. I'll show you those when I finish them.
These are my own pattern, and they work up quickly. They measure 8.5" wide by 6" tall, with plenty of space for an iPhone 6 Plus (or smaller phones, of course) along with any other essentials. The wrist strap is attached with a clasp, so it can be removed, too.
I think they'll be just right to "grab and go", and they'll make nice gifts for a few special people on my list. (I'll be adding some to my shop when I reopen in the new year, too!)
