Camouflage Clutch

Camouflage Clutch

I’m so excited! Loomis (the one with a cute dog avatar) posted a link to my site on a crafting forum! I think it’s about time I posted this clutch that I sent out for the last purse swap that I took part in. I sent it out too damn late, but luckily my partner was very, very patient. And even said that the biscotti that I sent along were “delicious”.

The outside is a thick camouflage material, as you can see. And I wish I have a photo of the inside. It’s fully lined with the smalll flower fabric that I used for the flower pin. It has a magnetic button and some kind of gusset on the sides. Too bad there aren’t enough photos for you to get a good idea.

Anyway, this might also be a good time to plug Baked Ideas. Currently the bestseller is the tutorial which I must say is extremely detailed and idiot-proof. Also popular are the pink paisley pouch and the fuzzy flower brooch. The rest are pretty much just there, for showing off. :-D

If you are wondering about the broken image that you see when you are posting your comment, it’s because Lenny is helping me install James’ Captcha Plugin, an anti-spam plugin for MT. Just that we’re currently having some problems compiling the modules. But it should be up pretty soon.

Oh, I found your blog from glitter. Love it. Love the clutch. I haven’t found an easy way to make one yet, but I am determind. I am also off to buy your cosmetic bag tutorial, it will be a perfect gift for my sisters birthday. I glad I found you, I be linking to you!

Cool! The clutch isn’t easy to make, so I guess your method’s the same as mine.

Would love to see what you can do with the tutorial! And do email me if you have any questions.

Won’t be able to install the captcha plugin after all.

Our version of Linux (version 7+, I think) is too old to support the gd module. So gotta wait till we migrate to the new server which will be soon, I hope.
