Clutching at Bags
I have never been into clutch designs much (my philosophy is that it is too difficult to negotiate a drink in one hand and a canape in the other with a bag wedged under one arm). But on Friday afternoon I discovered a bag of upholostery samples that my aunty in Melbourne gave me when I first started making bags about 5 years ago. Well it just so happens they are the perfect size for small clutch bags so I have sewn them with denim to dress them down a little and the result is a little collection of designs that are now at Lyssy May's store. I will hopefully have them also on display at my stall this Sunday at the Young Designer Market at Southbank. The markets are a great concept that is growing with each successive event so be sure to swing by to check out some of Brisbane's latest designer gear!
