This month in Embroidery Club, we will start month one of an embroidered clutch. This project uses an OESD pillow blank and the zipper for the clutch is already sewn into the pillow blank. Month one will be embroidering both sides of the blank and then month two will be constructing the clutch. There is a lot of freedom with this project. Choose your favorite set of embroidery designs that have been waiting for that special project. I picked a Tula Pink set and filled both sides of my pillow blank with flowers, birds, and a snake. A set of designs that have a variety of sizes and shapes would be the perfect choice for this project because we will be playing around with filling up the space of the pillow blank by multiple hoopings. I have included a few sets of designs that will work for this project, but you might already own some that would be perfect to use.
Embroidery Designs of your choice, here are a few from OESD that would work:
#51289 Moonlit Wings
#90041 Moon Garden (I used this one.)
