My crafting goes in waves. Sometimes all I want to do is knit. And, sometimes all I want to do is sew. I think spending 3 months painting Home Made house before I opened just over a year ago cured me of any such craving for painting.
Sewing has become my antidote to tax season. So, after spending hours cataloging every receipt from the last year, it’s only natural that I needed to stitch up a bag. Specifically, Amy Butler’s Charm Clutch. And, yes, a new system of financial organization WILL be implemented! After I make a few more bags.
I chose fabric from Joel Dewberry’s Heirloom collection for my first Charm Clutch. I think a purse is the perfect project for those bold prints that you might normally shy away from. Accessories are supposed to be fun! However, I have determined that I need a few of these for different occasions since it’s such a great size and gives you the options for straps, too! And, maybe because I gotta balance the less fun paperwork-y stuff with the fun crafty stuff.
