I made this clutch for my “secret swap” person through the Handmade Gift Exchange going on at Craftaholics Anonymous. Not going to lie, I am pretty nervous. I have never made something for someone who didn’t flat-out request what they wanted. This time, I was given a wish list to show me her tastes, and I am hoping she is going to like this.
The person that was selected for me in the swap liked Victorian things. What the heck does Victorian mean? Yeah, good ol’ Pinterest got me through that one;) I had no idea! Everything I found was lacy and ornate. I knew I had some lace to use (well an old lace shirt that I don’t wear anymore), so I started to brainstorm. Then I finally decided on making a clutch. Everyone likes clutches right? Ok…well I do! 🙂 In fact, I love them! So, I made this cute little clutch for her using a fat quarter piece of fabric I had lying around.
I really do like how it turned out so I am hoping she does!! We shall see! Fingers crossed!!!
