Here's a finished clutch



Just a quickie tonight to share this clutch I made using Noodleheads beautiful Gathered Clutch Tutorial.  As usual I recycled.  Remember those 3/4 LOUD patterned pants that were around a few years ago?  Well, I still had a few pairs taking up room in my wardrobe so I have started cutting them up.  The fabric from them is a soft brushed drill cotton that is good for pouches, wallets etc and the room growing in my wardrobe is good for a shopping spree!


Inside the clutch is some credit card pockets and clutch divider.  Strap seen is a sneak in cameo appearance from my camera strap and not a strap for the clutch.  I was thinking of adding one for my next clutch and also making the clutch a bit bigger next time.




I also wanted to show my luck at winning these patterns in a giveaway that  Melissa of Ardea's Nest gave.  Really like those Walking Frame bags!  Guess what all my colleagues at work are going to get this Christmas? lol   (Shoot!  I think they read this blog!) 

That's it from me.  I am going to be away for a week and may not have access to the internet so enjoy yourselves and I will catch up on your blogs when I get back.

The clutch is great. You just inspired me. I'm taking a break from cleaning out my closet right now. I'm going to see what I can repurpose.

Lucky you to win those great patterns, too!
