So, I finally turned all those little English paper pieced bits into something useful- a gaggle of linen clutch purses of course! No, seriously though, it is a gaggle. :) A pretty little gaggle.
The clutch purse pattern is by my sweet friend Diane, and it’s available for purchase here. It’s SUCH a fabulous and simple pattern- you’ll find yourself making clutches for everyone you know!
I made all of these lil’ guys to donate to the Denver Art Museum, where local artisans can sell pieces in the museum shop to help fundraise for new art programing. I couldn’t be happier about it! I just loooove this museum, and what it does for our city! So it was quite an honor to get an opportunity to be involved in this way.
I also made some mug rug-snack mat-coaster thingies. I dunno. These are just fun. I never have a plan. I just sit down and start grabbing scraps, and they just evolve. I did a quilt-as-you-go method for the log cabin, and the stars are English paper pieced and then zig-zag appliqued.
This bike one was so cute- I almost had to keep going and turn it into a pillow for my couch. Eh, well, I have a few more of those bike so I can make another. :)
Yay for pretty gaggles! Hope you’re week has some pretties in it too. :)
