Poppy Clutch

This elegant clutch bag uses luxury fabrics and fabric manipulation to create the poppy blocks

I decided to make a dressy little clutch bag suitable for an evening out, so chose to work in dupion silk and duchesse satin. The decorative poppy block features fabric manipulation and Suffolk puffs and adds a touch of glamour to a simple design. If you have been invited to a summer wedding you could make the bag in colours to complement your outfit. The bag would also look beautiful made in cotton or lawn.
