Last night I sat down and created a purse prototype based on what I learned from the making the clutch.
It needs some adjustments but I’m happy for a first prototype.
The flap needs to be about an inch shorter.
The tabs need some work for better alingnment at the top tab and an easier build at the corners.
I’m going to add a slight arc to the top of the side panels for aesthetics but it will also help to close the gap when I shorten the flap.
Overall I’m very happy with the prototype. In a single night I went from a blank Illustrator file to a working design. A little more fiddling with the design and it should be good to go.
