more Christmas gifts.

I made several gathered clutches for Christmas for the ladies in my family. I used Anna's wonderful tutorial, which is really great. I had a lot of fun picking out fabrics, that is always one of my favorite parts.


Hopefully they'll be a big hit. I just wish I would've made one for myself!

I herebye promise to make myself one in the new year. You too!

I've never made these before, but I've heard that the zipper up top can be difficult. Yours looks perfect. Mabye I'll write you if I run into trouble!

lovely~You know I'm just a quilter. I tried sewing a cute Scottie Dog for my son the other day. He ended up coming out cute, however those 90 degree corners were a bear! I'm just not a sewer, that's all.

I was tempted to try these last night, but for some reason, that zipper part just scares me!

Leslie said...

Anna said...

they look beautiful, I especially love all of them! :)

Very Cute! How Big are they?? Don't you hate it when you make something you love and can't keep it? a friend has been learning to knit, but everything is for her because she can't bear to part with anything!

These are so cute! I love your choice of fabrics. I think the grey is my favorite.

I love the fabric picking part too. Almost takes as long as the sewing. ;0p Love the Farmdale one!

Kelsey Rose said...

Very pretty. Do you happen to know what the designer/line/name is for that grey fabric with the little white flowers?

Your zippers look so good from here. I've made about 4 of these and am still not happy with how my zippers turn out... hints, please?
