Champagne Cut Velvet Bags

I've been in the sewing room making some more bags. My focus this week was a lovely shimmery champagne colored vintage cut velvet. I've been wanting to make a larger shoulder bag and this upholstery fabric was perfect for it. I paired the velvet with a tan corduroy and added a long shoulder strap that can be worn across the body. A magnetic snap and interior zippered pocket will keep items secure.

I also had enough fabric left over to create a matching foldover clutch. I love the simple design and think it would be right at home with jeans as well as a fancier evening out. Both of these bags are available for a limited time on the website with free US shipping before being added to the Etsy Shop. I have a couple more of the larger bags almost completed and will share those soon.

Has cooler weather inspired more activity in your sewing room, too? :-)

These bags are gorgeous! I have some new cut velvet that I was thinking of making into pillows, but I think I might make a bag instead. You have inspired me!
Thanks for stopping by the blog, too.
I posted about your shop on my other blog, because I love your fabrics and your handmade items. Hope things are going well in your shops this holiday season.
Take care,

Beautiful and elegant design, and fabric! I love the way you photograph them too!

The cool weather has made me fall in love with faux leopard. I've made one bag with it, pairing it with a vintage 50s barkcloth, and I have plans for another.
