2 Clutch Purses

I made two clutch purses. One for my sister-in-law who celebrated her birthday yesterday and one for my daughter, just because she's my daughter.

Urban Girl Wrap Skirt

In March, I attended Sew South, a modern sewing retreat, which was tremendously fun.  The founder and organizer, Jennifer of Ellison Lane Quilts, solicited sponsors which resulted in us receiving a huge amount of swag:  fabric, thread, interfacing, patterns, etc.  One of the sponsors was Kati Cupcake Pattern Company.  From them we received a free pattern to make the "Urban Girl Wrap" skirt.

Well, friends, I made the skirt!  Isn't it cute?  And it was so easy.  Just three pattern pieces plus the waistband.  The pink you see in the picture is bias tape which is used to enclose the raw edges and also forms the hem.  Ingenious!  The fabric is Amy Butler from a few years ago...from my stash.  Love it!!!

Willow Cowl, Finished

I'm not very good at taking pictures of myself in the mirror using my phone but here I am, modeling my Willow Cowl which I just finished knitting. I love the way it turned out and am very tempted to make another one even though it took me two months! The yarn is merino wool.
