my version

This is the latest in my sewing adventures. It's the Artsy Clutch from Amy Karol's book. It was fairly easy to put together and I decided to use the polymer clay button that I made the other day. I never use clutches but I think this will be handy when I run a quick errand and just need to take a couple of things. I'm quite pleased with the results. I didn't have elastic cord for the button so I ended up using a crocheted strip instead.


Have you ever noticed when you start a new technique/craft (in this case sewing) you just want to keep going? Well, I'm no exception. I never thought I'd say this put it's actually hard for me to put the sewing machine away now. I need to though, because I need to finish the new cards that I'll be posting on my site soon. I'm off to work on some printing...

  4. I love the little clutch and I am very envious of your sewing. I yearn to sew but I am all thumbs. Maybe one day...

  5. I hear you. I have totally dumped scrapbooking since I bought my new sewing machine - I can think of a reason to use it everyday.

  6. I can totally relate to the sewing machine addiction - I don't even want to get mine serviced, I'll have withdrawal,

  7. I like to sew now more than I did as a kid when the stitch ripper was my friend. "Doh! Read pattern then sew, read pattern then sew, read pattern then sew"

  8. it is lovely, and what a great touch, a handmade button. I have the same dilemma with clutches, and never seem to run out the door without taking a handbag overflowing with "essentials"!
