Great job! I love your color combo, and I'm not even a big fan of pink! Grin

Hey everyone, thanks so much for all of the kind comments! There are so many amazingly talentend crafters here, so getting props from the likes of all of you makes me blush...

cindygert - I used Amy Butler's pattern from her book In Stitches as a base, but I modified it quite a bit on the inside and made it a bit shorter. I also remove half of the batting she suggests. It would have been a bit too poofy for me. Hope that helps! Smiley

Hi hun,

Ok, let me see if I can remember all the things I wanted to say about your clutch....(Glad I didn't do a typo then, coulda been mega catastrophe hey? Grins)

1. Great choice in fabrics, they all go together sooooo well.
2. I just love the way you did the pink trim on the slash pocket...sets it right off.
3. You could so sell these, and make mucho profit, especially if you got more fabric at that price.

I think there were more, but I like to read all the posts before I do mine, just so I don't double up on any questions I may ask, and this time, coz EVRYONE loves your bag and has posted, I forget all the things I was going to say! (that's what happens when you're as old as me, or at least as old as my brain)

4. Just remembered, congrat's on getting the teflon foot...I have a new machine on lay-by (lay away for the people in USA) and plan on getting a teflon foot for that one, or maybe I'll get it for the one I'm currently using, that way I won't wear out the new one!

Ok, enough rambling, I'm back off to do more sewing.

Hugs and hope to see more of your work soon.
I love my Coastie and my Coastie loves me....... and my crafting addiction!
