$0.21 Clutch!!

I found this really bright and sparkly orange felt at Hobby Lobby last week. There were two sheets left in the clearance section for $0.21 each. I grabbed, unsure what I would use them for.

Well, I saw them in my office today, and decided to make something. A super fast, super simple little clutch. It took all of 5 minutes to make, and I think it is cute.

I think it will work well for shopping list and coupons, or as a receipt holder. It would even work as a bag organizer. Yes, I am one of "those" people who organize their handbag, with smaller bags. Yep, that's me. It makes it easier to switch bags. Anyway, on to the tutorial.

I took one sheet of felt, folded it a little less then half (you want to leave enough for a little flap), and sewed up the sides.

Next, I trimmed the flap, and sewed a little square of Velcro tape to both sides. That was it. Now I have a cute little clutch.

My daughter loves it, and wants one too, however she has placed an order for a pink one(princess of course).

I am linking to these great parties.

That's brilliant! I wish I was crafty like that. When I see orange felt, I just see a cut-out pumpkin LOL
