"Something Blue" is the theme for this month's Girl's Night Out, which is coming up soon.  I was excited that I could make anything I wanted, as long as it was blue and quickly went out and bought supplies. I went to Hobby Lobby (the only reasonably-priced craft store in town) and bought 1/2 yard of each of two fabrics.  I then made 2 fat quarters out of each of them and used one fat quarter of each color for each of these projects.  

The first thing I made is a clutch.  It was definitely the most difficult of the two.  I wish I would've used interfacing like the pattern suggested.  However, I didn't have any on hand and had already spent the $5 limit for the Girl's Night Out (yep, that's right.  BOTH of these together cost $5).  In addition to leaving out the interfacing, I also added one more set of credit card holders, so the clutch holds a total of 4 crerdit cards.  I found the tutorial for this clutch here:  http://noodleheads.blogspot.com/2010/04/gathered-clutch-tutorial.html.

The other thing I made is a Japanese Knot Bag (craftster tutorial here:  http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=357854.0).
