So I haven't posted anything in forever!!! Call it a dry spell, call it school, work, the boyfriend, the planning of a wedding... call it life, but I haven't made anything in a looong time.

Finally though, with the help of E.r.i.k.a.'s post here: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=22875.msg187145#msg187145 I was able to break the spell and make a wonderful little clutch for my friend's secret santa gift. (We're a bit late as we just had our xmas dinner and gift exchange this past weekend... better late than never!)

It took a couple of hours due to the details I added. I wasn't going to add the embroidered name on the back due to time but couldn't not add it - personalized gifts are the best.

So, here are the pics. I'm super happy the way it turned out and Santina loved it too. Smiley

Love the way the brown flowers are contrasted against the denim and strips!

This is lovely. I think I might have to make myself a pencil case like this! But I might do the flowers out of felt... I might even do butterflies or hearts... Thanks for the idea and well done!
