2 retro clutches

You know I was in a rut a few days ago and I took a day off and went to see Argo. This is not the kind of movie I would normally go see but my girl wanted to see it so we all went, even paying the higher public holiday rate. It turned out to be a good movie. Really held my attention. And of course after the movie, we all wiki it to find out more about the events that happened during the period. I remember during that time, we had no internet and all our information came from the daily newspapers. The world is such a different place now with the net and wifi.

Anyway, not thinking about making my quota and freeing myself from any sewing obligations was so good for me because I felt so relaxed. And hey, thanks to those of you who left me sweet comments. 

I feel quite recharged and the first items I made were these 2 clutches. The fabric was stashed in my bomb shelter. I had them washed and dried. Both are quite thick, almost like upholstery level.

This fabric I had forgotten about. It's so retro, isn't it? I had only a very small amount so it fitted a clutch perfectly. I realised that in order to get out of my rut, I had to make something I haven't already made like a 100 pieces.

This is the back.

I couldn't find the perfect lining so I made do with this beige polka dot.

This is another fabric with the retro feel.

I used my rose polka dot which I think is a perfect match.

November is hurtling by so fast. When I think about it I feel so paralyzed. So I try not to think about it. Good luck to all of you who are scrambling to produce stock for the Christmas market!

Eeks! Love the bags. And I think it's cute that your other half wrote that all the hot girls are called Jane in Singapore :-)
