65. FO

Cabled Clutch!

I had an idea- I went with the idea- I am super excited about the finished product.

So, I am trying to use as much of my stash as I possibly can before I go out buying new yarn. In this - I had an idea to make some hand clutches for my shop! I had absolutely no idea what i was doing but, it worked out perfectly!

I sewed in a liner (which was an incredible pain in the ass - sewing knit and fabric together is way harder than I thought) and added 2 snap buttons on either side of the opening flaps!

The yarn, my roomate brought back for me from italy for my birthday and the fabric came from my best friends families textile company. I love it - but i didn't have enough of it to make anything else. So, at least I finally put it to some use.

I'm just about to go and start sewing the liner into the second one I finished yesterday!


p.s - I'm working on my first ever baby related knit. It's weird.
