Welcome to week 1 of my year of crafts! As promised here’s the project that was done using a pattern from I Think Sew.

The Julianna Clutch Bag
This pattern is called The Julianna Clutch Bag! I love this pattern and it comes out a really cute size as well! It’s bigger than a clutch but smaller that a medium sized purse! The pattern was a breeze to use and worked up in just over an hour!

I love the fabric pattern as well, definitely a great Christmas gift for sure! I could not find a wooden ring anywhere though, so settled with a plastic gold one which I’m very happy with! I followed the directions almost completely except that I added a zippered pocket on the inside.

Overall I’m very happy with my week one choice. I can’t wait for an excuse to go out shopping and show it off now!

I’ve picked up some little extras to go along with next weeks project. Keep watching to see which fabrics and pattern I will be using next!

One last thing, thank you to those who have started watching along my year long journey! I’m hoping you all enjoy this first project and the many more to come!

Stay tuned for week two!
