Sherbet Clutch

Finally finished this little project. It's the "Artsy Clutch" from Bend the Rules Sewing. The colors remind me of sherbet; perfect for summer!

I spent way too much time embroidering one side panel. How do I get around tying all those start and stop knots? Gross. I would have finished this a lot faster had I not dreaded the knots.
I didn't even buy anything new for this project.

Used fabric from the stash, left over flannel from the Pleated Beauty Bag, a little green hair tie (I have hundreds of these!), and a button I bought randomly when the local JoAnn's went out of business. Turned out perfect! This is a really thick clutch; the two layers of home dec fabric plus the layer of flannel lining might be a bit too much. Maybe I'll use quilters cotton for the lining next time?

Up next... a dress from stash fabric. I'm trying to sew through the stash without buying too much extra right now. We'll see how that goes after a trip to JoAnns today....

Baking and sewing are the joys in my life! When was the last time you made something from scratch? There's a great sense of accomplishment there. I suggest you try it.
