So ... I made this little clutch using the Scrappy Clutch tutorial at From an Igloo.
It is a wee bag that will only hold the essentials, but it was such a relief to not lug a big bag out the door! I think I like it as a clutch and love it as a make-up bag. I'm going to try again with something of my own design, longer, maybe narrower, and this time I think I'll cut my fabric more thoughtfully so the pattern lines up nicely (duh).
In a bit of non-craft business, can I just rave about Santa Barbara for a moment? Oscar and I were at the park today when I spotted a little meadow, chock-full of yellow daisies. It spoke to me. It said, "come over here and frolic and take pictures of your adorable son!" So I did, and it was kind of great.
