Quilted Metallic Foldover Clutch [TGIFF]

I've wanted to make a foldover clutch for some time now...but wasn't sure how I wanted to do it.  I was debating whether to place seams to create the fold and then decided that might be too bulky.  Instead I decided to alternate the quilting and use that as the point for the fold.

I've been dying to use this metal zipper and fabric combination!  I used Nani Iro by Naomi Ito Little Letter Brushed Twill metallic fabric. I love how those pink flowers sparkle.  And to make the clutch even more over the top I sewed on some swarovski crystal beads to the foldover flap!

Now to figure out what to wear when I carry her during our next outing... Hmmm...

I love it! I have never done a zipper. I'm going to have to do one soon. Love the little bit of bling too!

So pretty and a bit glam, too! I really like the way you did the quilting to accent the fold. Lovely photos on the chair, too! Have a super day!

Changing the direction of quilting was an inspired touch, as were the crystals! Don't forget to take a photo when you take her out!
