Purse Project

This project is for my friend Kelly's birthday...I only was about three weeks late getting it to her, sorry! She received it in the mail yesterday so I'm safe posting photos and not ruining the surprise. It was my first time making this pattern and I LOVE the over-sized clutch so if you have any upcoming events, my friends, you just may be getting one of these as a gift :) I HEART giving homemade, personal gifts!

Contrasting lining:

Wood button detail:

The pattern wasn't the easiest to put together due to gathering on both sides, yuck, and having to hand sew in the lining, awkward but I'm happy with the finished result. Happy Birthday Kelly :)

Weekend in Cinci

A few weeks ago, Chris and I went to Cinci. for Alicia's graduation from UC. Congrats Alicia, we are so happy we were able to share in your day and good luck in DC!

She's in the's like "Where's Waldo"!

It RAINED the entire time we were at UC but it did get nice enough for a party after graduation and cornhole :)
