Putting our new Jeffy Clutch into production required heaps of planning and some tweaks along the way. Marrying so many component pieces, (zippers, leathers, fabrics…outers, linings, and logos, to name a few!), was no easy task! Keep scrolling to see how we worked through a few snags to land at a perfectly finished product.
Thread color wasn’t a given when it came to developing this two-toned semi-transparent Jeffy.
Black was unexpectedly harsh, so we ended up going with a soft yellow option.
Sewn as a continuous piece, the multi-layered body/lining panel would buckle and warp. The original design contained a bottom seam panel, so we added it back. It also means that the Jeffy can stand up on its own, as a good clutch does!
Blind embossing looked a little dull on the high-shine silver leather. Adding this gunmetal foil gave us the tonal pop we were after.
With all the kinks worked out, the Jeffies await their final sew.
A completed Jeffy Clutch is pert, pretty, and prepared to hold your most essential items!
