I made this for my boyfriend's stepsister for Christmas.  The outside is an old "boyfriend" jacket that I regrettably wore with billowy baby doll dresses in the early nineties.  It needed a new life, so I made this clutch.  The inside is scrap fabric I stole from my mother.  The whole thing cost about $0.66 (for the magnetic snap closure).

That's so cute!  I think I need to go find an old wool jacket, now... 

I love the colour combination, and the shape, and the snap.   Grin

Thanks for the comments!

As for the baby doll dresses, I used to wear mine with opaque tights and black mary janes.  Yeah, I was stylin' Wink  Unfortunately, I can't forget because this look was immortalized in my HS junior portraits!  Gah!
