A fellow creative friend of mine got in touch with me about making a clutch bag to store all her essentials in for her wedding day. Her bridesmaids were in pale blue and her own dress was a beautiful lacy fishtail. Using these as reference points, I was able to design her a bag that would tone in with her theme whilst also keeping her essentials close to hand. As well as storage for the items she had requested, I added a couple of my own items that I felt would be poignant to carry with her on her special day.
I chose a delicate shell button engraved with a swirling pattern. It echoed the texture & shine of the exterior fabric.
Inside the bag I added various pockets, loops and elasticated bands to cater for the various wedding day essentials.
I added an old silver sixpence as a luck token for her special day, alongside a needle & thread, chalk (for any food or drink related wedding dress mishaps), a handkerchief, some safety pins, string, space for her lipstick & mascara and a central zipped pocket for any other valuables.
