My DIY Clutch

I was feeling a bit crafty over the weekend, and took a trip to the fabric store. After browsing the cottons, I settled on a few pretty fabric quarters, and also picked up some interfacing and ribbon. When it comes to sewing with a needle and thread, I can stitch with the best of them, but my sewing machine skills are not so hot. After a few practice runs, a very tangled bobbin and one call to my mom, I came out with a pretty fabric clutch with a grosgrain ribbon tie. What do you think? I'm thinking of making some more -- It's just too cute!
