I've Been Busy

In my previous post, I just put together my Christmas present from my sister.  This was my first ever project, and it came out pretty good too!  Picked myself up some vinyl and a zipper, already had some extra fabric lying around, et voila!  I am impressed with myself as a novice sewer.  I think I will be adding more clutches to my collection.  Shhh... don't tell my husband.  I'm not sure if I want to embellish the clutch yet.  Might use it a few times, then I'll think of ideas.  Of course when I do, I'll be posting it up.
By the way, this was the first time I was in front of the camera.  I got to use my brand new wireless remote shutter release.  It took me a while to get used to it, but I wanted to show the clutch being "used".

Very cool! I can't seem to get the hang of sewing, suppose I should finally take a class. Love the color :)

That clutch is awesome!! Love the color.

christine said...

Hi Monica!! Thank you for liking. I feel the same way because I can't get past basic straight sewing, so I may take a class too... you should just try it again :)
