A Little Clutch

No, it's not just your imagination, there has been an awful lot of sew-y-ness around here lately.  The thing is, I got a few new pattern books (thanks Dad!) and a gift certificate for fabric (thanks Anita and David!) for Christmas.  And then MLK day weekend came along, and I had some extra time....ba-da-bing, ba-da-boom! 

This little clutch is from Bend the Rules Sewing by Amy Karol (aka Angry Chicken).  It's just a little lined sack folded over on itself, with a bit of elastic and a big button to close it up.  Right now it's home to a bunch of small knitting odds and ends, but for a few days I had it tucked into my purse holding my cell phone and chap stick and stuff.  It's kind of a fun little project, because, as the book notes, you could easily change the fabric and size to make it fit any occasion or contents.
