Hot Smocking Clutch

Here's the finished look of the smocked clutch, posing happily under the morning sun. Do you fancy it?
I added clear plastic button for the flap closure. The overall size for this clutch is 11" wide X 7" high. The flap's width is 6" long. It's quite a roomy clutch to stash your wallet & hand phone.

I have to say that the clutch looks much better when it is full with things. I only added lightweight interfacing to the lining fabric, so this clutch is really lightweight.

Here's more pics of the clutch...

Inside out look of the clutch.

I'm really happy & satisfied with the finished look that I gave myself a pat on the back :). Sorry for the picture overdose...I got too excited while snapping the photos & ended up with more than 40 snap shots of it :P

I learned how to make the gathered rose from Better Homes and Gardens magazine - 100 decorating ideas under $100 (Fall 2009 issue). 

Happy crafting.

It's been a month since  my last post. I caught the 'lazy to blog bug' but I'm still crafting as usual. I've been too lazy to even surf the web for a month! Now that the lazy bug is gone, I got so many blogs & emails to read.
:) It's so easy to blame on the bugs.

Yesterday was Earth Day so happy Earth Day everyone!
I made the Queen of Heart doll using bed sheet scraps, cotton fabric & felts. The hair, face and heart shape was painted using fabric paint. This doll measures about 10" tall. I made another set of the doll cut outs to make the king & still haven't sew it together....another pending work of mine :P

Thanks everyone for visiting my blog & I really appreciate all of your comments . It fells great to share ideas with others alike.

Have a nice weekend & happy crafting!

Beware of the lazy bug. *0*
