Violette clutch bag tutorial

The blogosphere is full of exciting projects made using Violette like this seriously pretty clutch bag by the folks at sew4home.com. It uses the sateen ribbon designed by Amy as part of her Violette collection for Renaissance Ribbons –  you can find a free step by step tutorial for it here.


Another great project is this large hold all – perfect for weekends away or even for carrying your sports kit. The one pictured here was made using an Amy Butler bag pattern by Melissa at 100 Billion Stars. Pretty and practical too!

And cushions galore! We spotted these two very different but equally lovely designs on the Make It Coats website, with free patterns to download. The woven pillow (left) is so striking but simple and the sateen pillows (right) are just begging to be lounged on.

There are tons of other ideas for sewing projects using this gorgeous – let your imagination go! You can download a look book for the whole collection here and why not listen to Amy talking about the new collection if you’re looking for more inspiration, see below.
