My pockets have always been full.
Not as in “the glass is half full” full. But as in, “I got too much junk to carry and I don’t like to use a bag” full.
But lately, my pockets have become much more crowded than usual, so I decided it’s time… time to become a grown up and carry a bag when I go out.
I followed a gathered clutch tutorial from Noodlehead, but opted for no gathering, and instead did two different fabrics for the top/bottom. I also added a strap to make it easier to hold.
This was the first time I’ve used a zipper in my sewing. Came out pretty decent, but definitely not perfect.
The bag has just enough room to carry all the essentials – wallet, phone, ipod touch, chap stick, keys.
My husband came whizzing by me as I took the pictures of the bag. I relented that the pictures were so boring, and he responded that he’d help spice them up with a few poses:
What a nice guy! And hopefully, that isn’t the most use this bag gets!
