This was my first attempt at the Ruthie Clutch by Anna Maria Horner. I was looking for a pattern which I could incorporate some of the wonderful wools we have at HRQ. This patterns seemed to accommodate that desire. I chose a cotton for the body of the bag; wool for the band and a dupioni silk in mist for the lining.
The pattern itself is well written and has detailed diagrams.
And I *love* her non-buttonhole technique! I work tomorrow, I wonder what other cotton/wool combinations I can come up with. . .
