This Clutch Kicked My Toosh

I went to:


Noodlehead



to try my hand at this:

Holy crudoli, that was hard!  Hard for me.  I'm going to try my hands at making some more now that I have one under my belt.  I actually LOVE the material I used.  I found it at Salvation Army for 95 cents.  Wahoo!  I'm not allowed to buy any more fabric.  Gotta use up what I now have (for reals, I was using clothing scraps before and those have about run out).

I've got pockets and everything in it. I'm giving my first one to a friend. I told her I'd make her a wallet and that it might not be the prettiest thing she ever saw, but I would give it a go. And I did!

My next one will be even better.

Great job! I saw that tutorial too and loved it but you are much braver than I am. I don't think mine would even look that good. :) Thanks for linking it up to the Weekend Warrior!

1. I love repurposed fabric, I shop at thrift stores for fabric all the time!

2. This clutch turned out really good-- kudos to you for trying it, because I'm still super intimidated by them. I featured you today on my favorite things :)
