First foray into clutch making for Christmas....

And it all ended in glue..........

Seriously, I cocked up by missing out one step and found myself cutting seams and re-aligning the whole thing whilst getting covered in super-strong fabric glue. But I think I've rescued it, on the whole! This is the spotty lining:

There's still some glue around the black fabric ruffle at the top but I seem to have made myself a kitsch little Christmas clutch - check out that fabric too!


Can't wait to wear this with a sleek little black number!

To cape or not to cape?

So, I love how this looks (although I'm pretty sure I won't look quite as cool, and I don't ski!):

It's on Burda and costs very little money (5 dollars 40!) for download. I think I have fabric sorted, like a wool - so more like a jumper/cardy maybe, as I don't think my machine would do wool this thick? I don't know for sure though!

I've been um-ing and argh-ing about this cape for ages and think I should at least buy the pattern but any thoughts welcomed!!
