Kitty Caddy Clutch

Quilts are definitely our first love but when we can make a different project using quilt techniques, we are in! This is why we love the Kitty Caddy Clutch! This clutch is practical, cute and perfect for any cat-mom (or cat-dad). Since Stacy designed this lovely clutch to hold her sewing items, she also sewed in a adorable Mouse Pincushion! It is an optional add-on, but it sure is a perfect pairing.

Stacy created her Kitty Caddy Clutch using her new fabric collection Woof Woof Meow for Moda Fabrics. The signature animal prints make it the perfect fabric for a kitty themed clutch!

You can find the Kitty Caddy Clutch pattern on Stacy’s blog, and she also made an alternate puppy version, for the canine crowd! Gather your materials and let’s get sewing! Follow her pattern for all the clutch instructions, and watch our video to have Stacy guide you through the embroidery and mouse pincushion steps.

 

We have some fun, quilty friends (and members of the FQS staff) who made the clutch along with us! Check out their creative twist on the Kitty Caddy Clutch pattern!
