a little gathered clutch.



Hey there! I bet some of you have thought I wasn't coming back... I didn't plan on being away from blogland for so long but life and Summer have a way of taking over at times. I am so looking forward to crisp, Fall evenings with the sewing machine working overtime.

Amidst all that was going on this summer I participated in a Flickr swap hosted by Sewtakeahike and Noodlehead. We swapped Noodlehead's super cute Gathered Clutch, you can buy it HERE. The clutch above (and below) was the one that I made for my super secret partner, Angela.



Here's a link to the clutch I received from Kirsten of Three Dancing Magpies...... I love it so much. Already I've had girlfriends try and claim it...fortunately, they're not swift enough.

I hope you all are enjoying the end of summer and the last long weekend for awhile.

I'll be back soon to share some of my summer thrifty finds and creative endeavours!

Always nice to see when you post, Erica! Hope you've been enjoying the summer.

That little gathered clutch is so cute! I've been eying that tutorial over on Anna's blog...just haven't quite gotten around to making one yet! I've added it to my ever-growing list of things I want to do. Gonna have to live to be 125 to get them all done! :o)

XOXO,

Cyndi
