The Designer In Me

I recently got my own cell phone – the iPhone 4. It’s an amazing phone, but I can’t always take it around in my pocket (because they’re small) so I’ve been bringing my tiny little shoulder purse around with me where-ever I go. Which isn’t unusual but I prefer little purses that I can hold and hang from my wrist as opposed to something that likes to fall off my shoulder. While in the apple store last week (completely unrelated from the iphone, we were getting a new mac adapter) I had an idea.

I will design my own clutch!

I had the process mentally worked out in my head (before that happens I can’t really do anything, don’t know why) and I knew the design I wanted – I’m going for an apple-esque look. Shiny white with an apple. However, since that would involve buying new materials I wanted to do a test run first. I grabbed my sack of scrap material, found a nice pink fabric, grabbed a needle and pink thread and sewed while I watched a movie. By the time the movie was over I’d had the entire body finished and was trying to figure out what to do for the top. I looked all over for a zipper (turns out I didn’t have one) and then buttons (also, didn’t have) but I did find ribbon! So I made a quick run to the beads store grabbed three red buttons and ran back home to finish the top. Eventually I topped the ends of the ribbon with clear nail polish to keep them from fraying and officially completed my first (awesome) clutch.

  1. What a nice little clutch!
    I bet you could sell these in some art festival or summer fair. Adorable, really.

    You could probably make other things to sell if you are this creative . . .
