We can use this simple fold-over clutch bag for just about anything!  The lovely Georgia Sakura Howell who designed the clutch says she “loves to incorporate unique traditional textile pieces into her daily life to add unique elements to her personal style”.  Think of the ways you can embellish the curved seam along the bottom of the flap to make it your own.  Piping, ricrac, crochet lace, machine embroidery, hand embroidery, fabric paint, etc. This is an excellent beginner sewing project.
