The first of many.

So, with sewing, I really would like to get to the point where I’m sewing my own designs. It’s much more fulfilling to know that you have designed what you’re sewing (in my opinion). Not to mention that if I ever choose to sell my creations, I will not be contending with copyright laws. So last night I embarked on my first self designed and sewn clutch purse. There are some things I would change if I made it again, (mainly changing some of the seams and reinforcing the purse with some chip board or extra heavy stablizer), but it was a fun little sew and I’m happy with the outcome!

    I love them too – their only downfall is that I always want more space! My sunglasses can’t fit in a clutch (maybe that means my sunglasses are too big)!
