Another Little Zippered Clutch!

Hi all!

I did just a little bit of sewing yesterday.  I had some scraps left-over from my Lazy Angle Sampler so I grabbed my Accuquilt Go! and the 2" square die and I cut them up in just a few seconds.  I absolutely love that little die!  I wasn't going to purchase that die when I first got my Go! but you all know how much I just love my 2" squares so I got it.  I am so glad that I did now - it makes cutting my leaders and enders so much faster and easier.

Well after I cut all the scraps up I realized that I had about enough of the squares for some type of a project.  I just love these little zippered totes from the Quilts and More magazine since they perfectly fit my Kindle.  I made a couple more of these clutches a while ago but I thought that one would be pretty in these soft colours.  What do I need with three Kindle clutches you might ask?  No idea LOL!  Do we ever really need a reason to make something pretty?  I certainly hope not - or I will have to start thinking up reasons for what I make.  Could you imagine that?  Having to have a purpose for everything we make.  I guess we could just say that the purpose is to be happy and enjoy the process.  Maybe I'll just give this little cutie away - that would make me happy too!

Want to make one of these little clutches for yourself?  The instructions are on the All People Quilt web site and you can find them here.

What are you all working on this fine spring day?

Very cute - I would like to make one of these for my kindle too, but I've never done a zipper - sounds scary!

It's not scary at all to put in this zipper! Just take a deep breath and go for it!

I love the spring-time colors! Today I've been working on Harriet's Triple Rail Fence in Christmas fabric and will pick the winner to my fat quarter give-away at 9:00 Central Time tonight! Have you signed up for the drawing? It's not too late - still four and a half hours before the drawing takes place...

I went to the link and the video was great for those of us who have a fear of zippers. I liked the video so much I think I'll grab my scraps and try to make a bag for my granddaughter tonight. Since I have 5 granddaughters I guess I will be good at it by the time I am done!

That is such a pretty clutch in lovely colours and fabrics.

Aww! This is an adorable clutch and I think you did a fantastic job in making this one out of your old fabrics. It's definitely a great way to recyle stuff from making your beautiful projects. Keep up the good work and all the best to you! :)
