Mini Clutch

I'm finally home again --- and SO HAPPY to be here!  It seems the older I get the more of a "homebody" I become --- this trip was the first time I've longed to be home 1/2 way through....usually I'm just a bit sad for trips to come to an end. Here's hoping I won't have to travel too far for a very long time!
  Now I have LOTS of blogs to catch up on -- but probably not till next week since my nephew and niece are arriving TODAY and spending the week-end with us!  Should be fun!

Today's post is of another mini clutch I made for one of my nieces birthday's.  I really like how these little purses turn out, but the best part about them is they are so fast to "whip up." (I can make one - start to finish - in 30 minutes or less!)
I embellished the outside of this one with a zipper flower
While I was gone I taught a sweet friend of mine how to do these -- she was pretty impressed with how fast these come together and how cute they turn out!
Of course you can't give a little girl an empty purse, so.........I included a few $$ and chocolate chapstick!
Here are some of the previous clutches I've done with this pattern:

Every little girl's purse HAS to have lip gloss. When Melanie was little every little bit of money seemed to go to a new chapstick! These purses are adorable.

Very nice! We should get together sometime and sew a bunch of these. I have probably 20 of them cut out, waiting to sit down and remember how you showed me to do it. :)
