Liking Leopard Print

  Now that I started sewing, I thought that the next perfect accessory project was making a leopard print clutch.  I found a new fabric store close by that's not the usual chain store.  It's the type of store that you have to look at every bolt of fabric since it's not quite organized.  That's ok because it's worth the affordable price!! So anyway, I bought some leopard print fabric and I happened to have some solid print canvas handy (yea I have canvas fabric handy, so what?).  I also thought that these would be perfect blogger meet up gifts for my girls: Lydia, Megan, and Courtney who've pretty much somehow influenced my liking to leopard print.
Just in case you want to know:
Shirt: F21
Skirt: thrifted
Plastic antler necklace: Grime
Bracelet: gift
Ring: thrifted
Clutch: My DIY

I adore the clutch that you made me! In fact, it's about to start popping up in a ton of outfit posts.

the lucky gals! I have 4 fabric stores that I check out for fabric-- 2 are chains, but 2 are smaller, local shops. And I wish the fabric there was much more affordable. I got my panda fabric for about $15 a yard!

Amazing! I've always wanted to learn how to sew using a machine but never got around to buying one and taking classes. Maybe I should, huh?

Daniela said...
