I’ve been brainstorming new ideas as friend’s birthdays come around. I figure they don’t want a set of blocks with their name on it (the post is coming soon, I promise!) So, during my free time lately I’ve been browsing blogs. I came across the tutorial for these gathered clutches at Noodlehead. I instantly loved it and thought I would give it a try.
Mind you, I have never tried gathering anything. So, although she said the project was quick and easy, I first had to have a session at youtube helping me figure out how to gather! I think I did okay… I recently had organized all my fabric and so my coordinating fabrics were easy to find and so I decided to go all out with two credit card pockets and a divider. This was my second zipper use and I found it super easy to do here. I think I’ve officially overcome my zipperphobia! I even found a few dollars around the house to make it look authentic! I’m excited to try this again soon. Happy Birthday Friend!
