A bit of inspiration for the Sunburst Clutch


Summer is almost here. The time of walking barefoot in the grass, having a picnic in a secret place, discovering new places and going to outdoor parties. It's also the time of sunny mornings at the market and sampling summer fruit!

Is there a better time than summer to create something colourful, useful, that reflects your personality like our newest pattern, the Sunburst Clutch? :)

Today we want to inspire you to make your own summery version of the Sunburst Clutch, the same way our wonderful testers surprised us with their ideas (especially this rainbow Sunburst clutch shown above!) and take a closer look at three delicious and healthy summer fruit, but we'd like to challenge you to design your own fruit-inspired clutch. 

First of, let's look at some wild blackberries. The Sunburst Clutch pattern allows you to play with a multitude of berry colours; balance the tones with a fresh green for the clutch body.

Who doesn't like watermelon, fresh from the garden or well chilled and scooped straight from the natural bowl? Use a mix of striped greens for the top and red polka dot fabric for the base or use the top to mix in some reds, whites and blacks and keep the base a serious dark green.

Last but not least, let's have some Papaya (sometimes written as Papaw, or Pawpaw), with it's creamy and soothing brightly coloured pulp. For your papaya inspired Sunburst clutch play with a variety or orange shades and make sure to mix in some black and white.

What about you? What's your favourite summer fruit and what colours and textures does your ideal summery clutch combine?

  1. Summer and Sunburst scream Oranges at me. Using one base colour certainly wouldn't limit the range of both tones and textures to use on the clutch bag - personally (If I were so inclined) I'd go for a zingy houndstooth material, using the corner 'sun' part for an accent colour.
