Now let’s have a look at all the amazing tester versions:

Toni made the bag pictured on the cover of the pattern <3 AND another gorgeous version too!
Toni said “Loved this pattern – I can see it becoming a firm favourite. I would also love to try it at 120% for a slightly bigger option! Such a cute little clutch!”

How amazing is the feature fabric on Susan’s version <3
Susan said “I liked the pattern. The finished clutch is such a good size. I love how quick it is to sew and will definitely be making more!!”

Liz┬ámade this super cute version <3 and wanted to tell you this…
“Talk about a clutch that checks all the boxes! It’s cute, quick, & easy to make. It’s not oversized but still carries all I need — plus the pattern makes it easy to dress up or down based on your materials. This may very well become my go-to quick gift!”

Kirrilee┬ámade this absolutely stunning cork and fabric version – how awesome is her tassel made from netting! Kirrilee said “I enjoyed making the clutch. It is an easy sew with challenging moments, a great way for beginners to take their bag making next level. I will be making it again.”

Mel made this amazing cork and glitter fabric version <3
Mel said┬á“A fun and quick project, very little time and fabric required to make this elegant clutch, would be a great market seller!”

Leah┬ámade this beautiful liberty and cobalt blue leather version – I’m in LOVE <3
Leah said “It’s a nice quick sew, with lots of scope for customisation – back┬ázipper pocket, internal pockets, wrist/shoulder straps and more!”

Erin┬ámade this beautiful cork and fabric version – how cool is the feather fabric she used?!
Erin said “I liked the pattern! It was fast and satisfying. I would definitely make it again. I think I would like to try printing it at a larger size and add card slots and maybe a zipper on the back. It is perfect for carrying around the essentials.”

Jane┬ámade this denim and cotton fabric version – I just love the colours on the feature fabric <3
Jane said “I love this pattern! I’ve got a couple more cut ready to sew!┬áThis is such a fun little pouch and I think it’s a cute addition to the Hippo family!”

Maria used a pretty silk fabric here, the colours are so great together <3
Maria said “I love this pattern. It’s so quick and matches so well the hippo Hobo! I’ll make a lot more to give as presents to my friends. It’s also a great scrap buster as the flap needs so little fabric.”

Nancy┬ámade this amazing version – those flowers <3
Nancy said “I liked it and would make it again. This is a sweet bag that could have multiple uses from a quick grab on its own to being used inside a bigger bag. This will make a great gift with appeal for all ages!”

Danielle made this pretty version in green Jennifer Paganelli fabric <3
Danielle said “ItÔÇÖs a beautiful size and style!”

Margareth┬ámade this amazing Tokyo Milk and Leather version…so PRETTY <3

Charlotte made this GORGEOUS version, I just love the fabric and faux leather she used <3

Mitzi Made this beautiful version <3
Mitzi said “I like the fact that this is a quick sew. I like the size of the clutch, the fact you can mix fabrics or materials and get many different results.”
