Okay, so I lied

I said I was going to give my poor little sewing machine a rest... but I woke up on Saturday morning inspired. Somewhere in between asleep and awake I designed the cutest little clutch purse. I quickly jotted down notes before the ideas faded like my dreams so often do. Here's the end result.


I did some squiggly quilting and even added an inside pocket. It's the perfect size to hold your wallet (made to match, of course), your keys, your phone and a few other essentials. It's about 10" across and 5" high. After it was done I cut out another one so I could keep one and put the other one in my Etsy shop.

I've also have a few more in different fabrics cut out and ready to go. I'm loving these!

And if that wasn't enough, I came up with these head bands:


Julianne and her friends were over, and they went crazy for them. I let them pick out their own fabrics and they did a wonderful job.

"L" is in the 7th grade and chose black and white "'cause it goes with everything."


"K" is in 4th grade and loves everything with peace signs on it.


I am also putting these up in the Etsy shop. Well not these ones exactly ~ I paid my models in merchandise ~ but I made duplicates for the shop.

A pretty productive weekend, wouldn't you say?
