A classic curved clutch bag with darts, that converts to a wristlet bag with a hidden strap connector inside. Easy to sew and fat quarter friendly.
The ideal small clutch or wristlet bag for a night out. The Glam Girl Purse has a smooth curved shape and darts in the bottom to give it enough volume to carry all of your essentials without being bulky.
