Have you tried Noodlehead's gathered clutch tutorial? I highly recommend it. It's a dandy. Ms. Noodlehead (a.k.a Anna) is also offering a gathered clutch pattern for purchase if you wish to sell gathered clutches in a store or at art fairs. How cool is that? Thanks, Ms. Noodlehead.
And speaking of stores... (How's that for a lame segue from one paragraph to the next? I do what I can. lol!) I know that in my last post I promised lunch bags in my Etsy store. Well, when all was said and done, I only ended up with two bags left, the yellow Cherry-O bag and the green Umbrella Love bag. The bad news is there are only two bags and I don't want to stage a photo session for two bags. The good news is that I will make some more now that prom, eighth-grade promotion, birthday season, and the end-of-the-school-year busy-ness have come to pass. Promise. Cross my heart. Hope to die (not!). Stick a needle in my eye. (It could happen.I'm just that awkward tricky.) There will be lunch bags, pillowcases, and zippy wallets in the store soon.
