Then last night I had a dream of a new closure design for the clutch. I tested it out today and yippee, voila!
that's what I was looking for!
Here is a peek at the new closure (this is just a prototype and I apologize, I know it's probably hard to see the detail due to the busy fabric).
Okay, here you go:
(front of clutch)
(view of the wrap around flap)
(back with snap closure)
The flap is approximately 2" wide and is adorned with a 1" wide ruffle. It wraps around the entire clutch and fastens closed at the back. I used a resin snap on this one, but will test out both magnetic snaps and metal snaps. I am also contemplating adding a second snap to the back of the clutch for when you have a little more to carry around, so that you will still be able to snap it closed.
Hoping to also list some in the shop by the end of Oct!
I hope you are all enjoying a lovely weekend! Off to the corn-maze we go!
