On pondering I realised I could make some small clutch bags using a tried a trusted pattern. (In evidence may I refer you to Exhibit A and Exhibit B!)
I have managed to make five of these bags using fabric only sourced from the scrap bag, the fabric from the charity shop sprees on holiday, fabric given to me by a friend's mother and my charity shop tin of buttons. Hopefully just selling one of these bags will cover the material costs of making all five. This is why, M'lud, I feel justified in keeping this one....
I just fell in love with it whilst making it. It is using the only patterned fabric to be found in the scrap bag. I love the blue and orange combination even though I cannot think of one orange piece of clothing in my wardrobe, I was pleased with how the ruffle looks even though it may not be my finest work and the button was found after very little rummaging in the tin.
Anyway, all the rest look so co-ordinated together. The one I want to keep is the odd one out! I rest my case!!!!!
P.S. I couldn't bear to throw away any of the offcuts from my teeny tiny pieces of fabric so I made this coaster using the flip and stitch patchwork technique. Well the fabric did cost me a whole four pounds!
