I made this purse over the weekend. I've seen the jute handles quite a few places and fell in love. My favorites are from drikab. They are just gorgeous. I am hoping to buy the clutch for some Christmas gifts. I wanted something smaller, than the big ole purse I carry now. Not so much an everyday purse, but one to a add some spunk to some of my plain jane outfits. It was easy to make, except to actually sew the handles on. I think a need a heavy duty sewing machine for that, so I stitched them on by hand. The fabric I purchased from purl soho. It came beautifully packaged. I will definitely buy from them again.
