June Sew Along - The Simple Clutch!

I really should have had this theme last week to kick of our new monthly Sew Along project. This month the members of TSL voted on making "The Clutch"! Unlike last month, with the Sprocket Pillow tutorial, members are picking their own pattern or tutorial to follow. I am very excited to see everyone's unique take on the simple accessory that is a must for every wardrobe!
