Sewing really is a kind of therapy for me and, I am sure, for many of you as well. It is my creative outlet and I have begun looking at the world in a whole new way. Anything that catches my eye is game for my next quilt or project. I have no formal training in sewing or design so for me it is on the job training with lots of bumps and bruises along the way. So sit back, sip your tea or coffee and join me in my journey.
I found a wonderful tutorial for an absolutely gorgeous gathered clutch onNoodlehead blogso I had to try it and I found it to be very easy. I made one and then decided I needed to adjust the pattern so I could make a diaper clutch for a friend of mine who just had a baby. I am very pleased with both!
Here is the purse clutch I made
I even used an invisible zipper adding to the classiness! (Is that a word?)
And this is the diaper clutch I made
It measures about 10.25" by 6.25" and has a wrist strap for easy carrying. It is elegant enough to be an evening bag and double as a diaper/wipe clutch so any trips to change a dirty diaper in public go unnoticed!
I hope she enjoys it as much as I did making it. I think I'll make a few more tweaks and post another tutorial....
