I know, I know I am not blogging as much as I would like again. I have good excuses - in the form of planning book 2, upgrading my website and we also have builders in my basement (no I don't wanna talk about it). Rest assured all those things are arresting and distracting in equal measure :) It's all good though, and to help make up for my bloggo absence I have a very very tasty Amy Butler blog exclusive coming up for this Friday - more about that later.
I've had these frames in my stash for a few months, but it wasnt until last week that I sat down and figured out how to use these beauties. This clutch was one of those rare projects that was a complete joy to make from start to finish. From conception to snipping off the last threads, it just kind of made itself. There are a good number of pieces to this clutch. During construction I was worried that I might have miscalculated any of the (many) measurements, but I needn't have worried all the fabric pieces behaved themselves and they all fitted togther with no arguments - BLIMEY!!

When I get my mitts on a new fangled purse frame I like to try and make sure I know how to use it (well) before I put it in the shop :) In the end this frame is a breeze to use and this yummo clucth was pretty easy to fix up - only thing is there are a good number of pieces so you either have to label everything or you have to pay attention the whole time you're making the purse (so I labelled everything). I am sooo happy with the result, it is indeed my favest Lisa made clutch. My mum thought I'd bought it - and she knows that I design bags for a living.
Coming next: An amaaaazing Amy Butler give away that you don't want to miss. Up for grabs is fresh cut fabric from her latest range (Soul Blossoms) and her 2 newest sewing patterns (and more!!). Also exclusive pics of Amy's booth at Quilt Market (including a pic of Amy's dad!). Yeah! Like I seriously wish I could enter. See you Friday!
