Hot Pink and White Poka Dot Clutches

A few weeks ago I got an order from a bride who wanted 8 clutches for her bridesmaids. I was so excited about my first bridesmaid clutch order, and I actually ended up getting another order just a few days later! 
Anyway, this bride found fabric online that she wanted me to use, and I ordered it for her.  The fabric was from China, and I was a bit nervous about my first international purchase, but it went very smoothly, and the fabric arrived quicker than I expected.  It is a cotton fabric, but it is soft and almost silky and very high quality.  The hot pink and white poka dots didn't appeal to me at first, but after putting the clutches together, the fabric is starting to grow on me.  I love that the poka dots vary in size, and I have never seen a design quite like this fabric.  I have all the clutch bodies finished and they are just waiting to be adhered to their silver clasp frames.  I thought they looked so pretty all lined up on my cutting table this evening.

    Jen, those are darling. Actually quite elegant. I'm sure the bridesmaids will love them. We forgot to talk about your Hong Kong fabric. Save a scrap so I can play with it. :)
