Summer Clutchlet Workshop

Another handbag workshop has come and gone! Twenty women gathered excitedly this past Sunday to create their own Kristy Bag Summer Clutchlet.

Kristy designed this buttery soft envelope style wristlet with a beachy feel for the workshop goers to stitch up and take home with them.

Dave and Kristy hand cut, hand punched, and set snaps on 20 bags but that’s where their work on these bags stopped. They would be stitched by excited workshop attendees who can proudly say they were “Made by Me.”

The bag panels were laid out, ready for each attendee to find their perfect bag. Then they got to choose between white, black, or brown thread to stitch up their bag. Each bag was adorned with a fun tassel.

After a brief stitching tutorial, everyone got to work. There was fun and laughter throughout, and even some stiff stitching competition between friends!
