Vintage Roses and Lace Clutch

From time to time I have made
these clutches
often as a "giveaway" here on my blog.

I have just made another one which is going into
my etsy shop

I get so much pleasure from putting these together
as I get a chance to use some of these
gorgeous vintage laces, doilies
and embroidered tray cloths

which I have been collecting over the years.

Look at this gorgeous embroidered butterfly on this piece.

I have lined it with some very soft beige and white cotton with a
beautiful large flower printed over it.

and embellished it with some roses dyed from cheesecloth
and added layers of collaged
dyed doilies
topped with a cameo and pearls.

and finally the back of the clutch
is embellished with
another dyed doiley
and it looks so pretty I think!

I have bordered the whole purse with some
very soft dyed cotton lace.

So if this appeals to you then go visit my Etsy
for more details.

Just thought I'd share some Summer love
with this most beautiful rose
"Sally Holmes"
growing happily in two places in our garden.
Isn't she a real winner?

Enjoy! xxxSuzy

  29. Two beauties! I have always loved the old fashioned single roses the best - most often they smell so heavenly whereas the more 'beautiful' roses have the fragrance taken out of them.

  35. Thanks so much for stopping by Suzi! Your clutches are AMAZING!!! I am drooling! LOOOOOVE!!

  36. Hi, Suzy, Amazing work, as usual! The clutch is so elegant. I think you've put those old linens to good use and I love your fabric flowers. I admit that it's difficult for me to use my old linens because they are inherited and therefore have sentimental value, and because I know how much time goes into making them (made some myself). You're helping me to loosen up!
    best, nadia

  37. Your creations are just beautiful. I love all the fabric and lace you use.

  38. Absolutely stunning!! colours and flowers!!:))
