that's what I keep telling my husband about my trips to JoAnns. Its hard being the only female in the house (3 sons and hubby), so buying fabric brings me a nice sense of peace after the manly choas of the day.  After an especially exhausting weekend of little league tryouts and Superbowl Sunday, I desperately needed to make something pretty and girly. This clutch is what I came up with. I was super happy with the slash pocket that I made. It came out much nicer than I expected.The closure flap is made from pink vinyl, which wasn't that hard to work with, now that I have a teflon foot. All of the fabric came from JoAnns clearance section, which gives this purse a grand total of $5. Not bad!

Let me know what you guys think. I ALWAYS appreciate everybody's feedback.

I think it's darling! I love pinks. And the inside pocket is fab!

I have some of the same lining fabric which I also purchased with the thought of using it as a purse lining.
