The Clutch That Nearly Killed Me

My dear friend is turning thirty, so I decided to finally try to make the gathered clutch from Anna at Noodlehead.

I have seen this clutch many times, floating around the bloggy world.  So many women have made it, so I figured I could handle it.  Oh. My. Goodness.  I had such a hard time with it!  I don’t know if my brain was just a little mushy from caring for my sick kiddos, but I stared at that tutorial forEVER, trying to understand how I was supposed to sew on that zipper.

But I finally got it!

Once I figured it out, I had one of those “duh!” moments.  It definitely should not have taken me so long to figure it out.

I used the same fabric to make the pockets on the inside as I did for the band on the outside.  The outer fabric is a yummy linen that I snagged from the remnants section at JoAnn’s (plus, I had a 20% off coupon, so I got a killer deal!).

I think she’ll love it.
And if she doesn’t, I’ll use it!

Now that I’ve made one, I think making more will be super easy.  Christmas presents, anyone??
