I just realized that I had not share this project with you yet!
So better late than never (it seems that I say that a lot) haha sorry I know one day I'll be good with this blog and update often. Someday.
I made this clutch a few months ago for my friend's birthday. I met her in college, she's super smart! We took chemistry classes together and had fun a lot. We actually shared an apartment for a few months. She's now studying in Indiana so I have not seen her for a while!
Anywho, when her birthday was coming up, I kinda freaked out a little. I wasn't sure what to give her. This is why I love to sew! Handmade gift are so personal, you can make anything and it's going to be special! Anywho, I found the tutorial online and decided that this would be a great gift for her!
I used 3 different prints of fabrics here. The top part is from a fat quarter from JoAnn, the main part is Birds and Clouds Blue -- Ipanema by Birch Fabrics, and the corner triangles are from Barcelona Sky City Map -- Zen Chic by Moda. I got lucky that I had these fabrics in hand because I feel that they go along together very well! Mind you, I'm not very good with mix and match-ing, so this was a big accomplishment for me.
When my friend received it, she told me that she couldn't believe that I had made it for her! That just made my day. I should sew gifts more often :)
