Friday Create Along

Well once again I have slightly deviated during the following of a pattern, it’s how I roll. I had a great time making this great convertable clutch from LBG Studios! I hope someone played along too. I couldn’t decide between 2 fabric prints so I actually cut out the pieces for 2 clutches but only got to sewing the one together.

I planned on taking photos of it since yesterday was a nice sunny day and of course my camera batteries were dead. Today was a snow stormy blizzard filled afternoon so my pictures are so-so. I used this great seahorse fabric I stumbled upon a little while ago. It was probably something Keyka Lou mentioned on her blog and I ran off to buy it.

Here’s the little addition I made, I added D rings inside to allow for a stap. I’m not much of a purse kinda gal but I love totes and bags, especially if they can be worn cross body. Now I have the option of using this as a tote with a cross body strap.

Next up let’s try this wipe container repurposing into a fun game for kids. I’m going to make one with letters on it for my classroom. I’ve also got a fun idea for a numbers one too, we’ll see if I get that far. I’m excited about this one because it will be a chance to use up some scraps and also to get my Cricut out for some more fun.

  3. HAHAHAHA I Totally have a wipe container set aside for that exact project! I saw that same tutorial a couple months ago and decided I wanted to make it. Just haven’t gotten around to it. Was just going to cut up fabric and put it in. Hadn’t thought about getting fancy with letters or anything yet. But maybe I should. I know he’s too little for it now but soon enough. =D
