Well, after weeks of talking about making Christmas pressies I finally tackled one of the patterns. This is for the gathered clutch bag (tutorial found on Noodlehead), which can also double as a small make-up bag I guess - although I have found another pattern for those which is more 3-dimensional.
Anyhoos, as usual I got slightly baffled halfway through the instructions and ended up improvising, (I'm really pants at following instructions unless they're really, really clear).
Ladies and Gentlemen, may I present my first attempt at the Gathered Clutch:
You can see the interfacing in the last photo so I'll need to pay more attention on the next one. Also going to include the divider and cardholder or at least include a wee inside pocket.
Right, off to the midwife now for my 31 week check-up and have a sneaking suspicion that I'll be making more bags when I get home :)
