My Attempt at Making a Clutch

I bought a stack of beautiful, color-coordinated fat quarters last year at Purl Patchwork. Every couple weeks I take them out of my closet and stare at them, thinking that I'll come up with some fancy project to make, since I love the fabric so much. I finally got inspired this weekend and I attempted to make my first clutch purse with two of the pieces of fabric.

I searched the internet for a simple tutorial, but couldn't find one that worked. I vaguely based it off of this tutorial on U-Handblog (which is a great site for bag tutorials), but got lost on the directions. So I thought I would try and wing it and write up a tutorial from what I learned. But it didn't quite work out the way I planned! The lining was all out of whack and I wasn't quite sure how to secure the top part of the bag. But I think now I understand what I did wrong and am going to try again next weekend. Stay tuned...
