cute vintage looking lace clutch
i have to admite that i didn't own a clutch. but now i can make them in a tick. so you will get quicker if you make more of them.
the inspiration for this project was a gift pack of a Christina Aguilera (by night) parfume. it came with a clutch and i almost bought it even though i didn't even like the parfume..
