Some of you might have heard about the Sewing With Nature ( http://craftzine.com/sewingwithnature/ ) Contest that was held throughout January.  The results haven't been posted yet, but the contest is closed and I can post the bag I made!!! 

It took me a long time to come up with something to do, but then the answer was clear - a clutch!  In the shape of a leaf, specifically.  Because I am completely bollocks at making my own patterns, it took a long time to put together.  Cheesy  But I finally completed it!  I may post a tutorial if anyone is interested Smiley

For size:


It is lined, and the 'stem' of the leaf acts as a zipper.  It also has beaded dew drops, which unfortunately are hard to see in these pictures Sad  But they're there! 

Hope you enjoy it!  I probably won't win the contest or even get a runner up, but it was a lot of fun and I like my little clutch Smiley
