I made these clutches awhile ago and I completely forgot they existed. I’m glad I remembered because they’re awesome. My favorite part is the handles, they’re sticks! I collect the sticks from a tree in my front yard, but only when the tree is being pruned or a storm has knocked branches out, then I store the them in my basement for a while to dry out. I like to include an extra set of handles in the bottom of every clutch just in case a furry friend finds it. The sticks are quite strong and easy to replace, they are simply resting in slots, they won’t slip out or break from everyday abuse. I carried one for months and never had a problem, but I did get lots of complements! I’ll be posting them in my Esty shop soon, check it out if you think your in love and want more details.
