Introducing Emily

My Godsister, Emily, asked me to make her bridesmaid gifts and she sent me links to cute bags that I've never made.  Both fun and daunting.  I am not sure if this is what she had in mind.  Now that I reflect, she actually might have intended for them to be smaller.  But I was trying to think of all the necessities that a girl needs for her bridesmaiding (Yes, in my world, it is in fact a verb.) duties.  I am your resident bridesmaiding expert, afterall. 

In the end, I made myself one too.  I have to say, I love it.  The size is great to fit all the important items and then some.  But sleek enough to not scream "giant handbag."  A fine line, my friends.

I think Em liked them.  Though, she saw the for the first time as her bridesmaids opened them and I was in the same room so what was she going to say really? 

Anyway, I wanted to take some great photos of the bags before I left.  But then I forgot about that plan.  Typical.  So as I was wrapping them at 11PM the night before the bridesmaid's luncheon, I threw a few of them on the bed and took some crappy pics with my blackberry.  So in review, these were taken when I was way over-tired, at night, on a bed, in a room with bad photography lighting and on a blackberry.  Qual-i-ty!

There were two different insides.  I'm not sure how clear it is on the fantastic photos but one is green with tiny white polka dots and the other is a bit sassier with green and white zebra stripes.  I love them both but the bolder zebra print is my favorite. 

The Emily Clutch is surely going to become my new favorite bag that I make.  I just love the outcome!

I love the zebra lining, it's such a fun pop! This is such a great idea for a bridesmaid gift, because you're right, it's so hard to find a bag that fits everything but isn't a suitcase.
