A Finish

I FINISHED the clutch wallet.

I need to work on the zipper pocket, for another one, but I am happy enough with this one.

Most of the fabric came from Mad About Patchwork. I went to visit Pam yesterday. She says she doesn't have those fabrics anymore, but I am sure you can find equally lovely fabrics to make the clutch. She also had the stabilizers I needed, to give it a really professional look.

I saw a definite sign that spring is on the way.  The temperatures here are still frigid, and today it is snowing again, but I saw this at the grocery store.

How can spring be far away, when the Peeps appear in the stores! These ones followed me home.


  1. What a sweet clutch, Kate. The accordion pockets make it so useful. I really like your lining fabric!
    A sour watermelon peep?!?

  2. Your clutch is wonderful......well done! Peeps......are they marshmallows? We do't get them here.

  3. Lovely clutch, and the closure, well done, Peeps, nothing like that down here, can get through Mighty-ape, but out of stock. Are the marshmallows, with an acidy taste? Like the old " Sherbet dabs" I bought way back in about 1954, with a real liquorice straw?

  4. I've never even heard of Peeps!! Must check them out. Your clutch is beautiful Hard to imagine you could improve on it. I'll stay tuned.

  5. Nicely done on the clutch and a great choice for the lining fabric (why go with a boring solid when there are such cool modern prints).

    i am a fan of peeps. Will have to keep my eyes open for those ones.

    Thanks for linking up with Needlework Tuesday.

  6. I've not seen the green ones. Which store? I got the blue, purple and yellow ones from Giant Tiger.
