I Just thought I’d share my sewing for today. I was in the mood for something simple, as on Thursday mornings i help with literacy groups at my sons Prep (kindergarten) class. I honestly have so much respect for teachers of 5 year olds.. and all other teachers.. .. 45 minutes with a class of small people is all I can take. I do enjoy it though, there is nothing quite like seeing a young mind learn.  Anyway, after my Thursday sessions my brain is fried,,  so simple tote bags were on the agenda.

Playing around with clutches

So I have been playing around with clutches for the last few days. I have been asked to make some for Handmade Heaven,  an online handmade one stop shop… check it out.

I am not a very clutchy person, having small boys, I tend to like being handsfree..I do like the look of them however so it’s a bit of a bind!.  I tend to usually go for more of a wristlet..I have made some clutches before, like these


I thought this time I’d try a few different ones, like these…..




I do always like upcycled denim so I might do a few more of those.  I have also just managed to get a couple of swivel clasps so will do some with removable handles.

I’m not sure what I prefer yet, but it sure is fun playing :-)…. (although I have to make some cushion covers for an order first!)
