The "Everything Wristlet" Experience - Part 3

Now , it is time to finish this lovely purse.
Here is a picture of the matched and pinned top folded edges of the exterior and the lining:
I only machine stitched the long front and back sides, because it is to difficult to make a nice , clean turn for the short sides, where the center pocket is attached.
The front was easy:
The back was more difficult . I took the stitches out at least 3 times, before I had a straight line where I wanted it.
I finished the side seams by hand, using an (almost) invisible stitch.
 As a finishing touch, I added a beautiful removable brooch.
Here is my stylish evening clutch:
This everything wristlet is worth the effort.

  2. Wow. You do beautiful work! And the bag is stunning. Thanks so much for sharing your experiences making this bag. They have been a great help to me as I make mine (nearly done now-- yay!). And your fabric choices are so inspiring-- I think I may have to make another one. :)
