Diva Envelope Clutch

I made a Diva Envelope Clutch, pattern by eSheep Designs. I wanted to use this hot air balloon fabric, but then totally forgot it is directional and with the flap the balloons would have appeared upside down! So I used the piece I cut out for the exterior fabric and used it for the lining instead and I used the balloon fabric on the bottom piece outside only.  The fabric I was going to use for the lining went on the outside and I appliqued some of the balloons onto the flap so it would look somewhat balanced. Not my best, but at least I was able to make it work.

The lining works here, since you see the correct direction of the balloons.

The back has a zippered pocket and I added a strap handle, but the handle only works if there is something stiff in the folder. Oh well sometimes things don't always go as planned.
Pin It Now!


  1. I think it looks beautiful. I like that you've appliqued ballons on the flap. The whole is visually striking.
    You seem to say that it does work well as a clutch. I would then use it to store things like papper patterns, paper tidbits, etc. Have a nice week!

  2. I love it! I think the appliqued balloons are just perfect on the flap and that was a very creative idea.

  3. I have always wanted to make a fabric envelope I think it turned out great and the balloons look good. I love that you have a zipper in there as well. The closure is a nice added touch as well.

  4. Hey, what a nifty surprise! (I LOVE balloons... went up on one many years ago and got to experience a great view of the city.) This is such a colourful take on the Diva, with a really interesting pattern on the blue fabric, too. Reminds me of zen doodling. I think it looks fantastic, Daryl - keeping this or was this for someone special?
