Mother's Day - for me!

I am sure you ladies are like me and most of  things we sew and craft are for our kids and other people - rearly ourselves! I have seen this tutorial over at noodlehead last year and have been wanting to make it ever since but never find the time to make myself anything. So with Mother's Day coming I thought it was the perfect time to give it a try!
Here is my new Gathered Clutch! I am very happy with how it came out, I will admit I was a bit neverus about sewing it. I thought I was going to mess the zipper part up or something. I used only scrap pieces of fabric to make the whole thing too! I have been saving this fabric becuase it is some of my favorite so it is nice to finally make something out of it. I even had the zipper on hand too so I had to buy nothing to make it. :)
On the inside is pockets for my cards too. It was a very easy tutorial to follow!

I also made these too cute bottles for my bathroom counter top. I seen them over at The Idea Room. and had to make them. The bottles started out as Starbucks frappuccino bottles. I had to soak the bottles in hot soapy dish water and the stickers and glue came right off! Very fun and fast project!!

Have a great weekend!!
