Introducing The Irene Clutch

This clutch was designed as a companion to the Marie Tote, that was inspired by Marie Curie. It only seemed fitting to name it after Irène Joliot-Curie, the daughter of Pierre and Marie Curie and a Nobel prize winning scientist in her own right. 

The pattern for Irene is available to my MEWsletter (newsletter) subscribers.  Each month I send out an update with all the fun happening at MEW Designs. You can subscribe HERE and get a copy of Irene.

I can’t wait to see what’s created, the best part of releasing patterns is seeing creations I could never have imagined myself come to life. I’d love to see what you make! For tips and tricks, hacks, updated and some great examples please feel free to join my MEW Designs Facebook group
