I have never made a clutch before. I’m more of a middle-to-big kinda bag girl, so when I saw the Naughty Notions Challenge required to make a clutch I decided to try.  Here are some shots of my finished clutch.  I used a dark denim for the exterior and a pink home decor weight patterned fabric for the interior.
