Since I've been in clutch-making mode for a little while, I found this fun lizard-embossed red vinyl at the fabric store when I went to pick up more interfacing. I've never sewn on vinyl before and I'm impressed with the way it came out. I chose the "baguette" size for this one. Total cost was less than $20! :-)

Did you check out my blog giveaway? You can choose this size clutch, 
or a larger one, in a different fabric!

That top is beautiful! I love everything about it, especially the sort of "dragon tail" in the back. I am a sucker for those types of tops and dresses.. You look FAB!
