I am really excited to have this ready to go when I need it on Library day and Sundays. The clutch isn't too big...it only holds about 2-3 diapers+a travel wipes container but with a toddler that (hopefully) should be potty training in the somewhat near future its not a problem with the quicker errands.

I kept the same dimensions as the tutorial but omitted the flannel and chose to use scrap bias tape instead of a hair band and a button (i felt buttons and munchkins aren't a good match). My outside fabric is actually an old pair of jeans, the inside fabrics are from projects of old. Not bad for a bunch of scraps eh? One thing i did do (which probably wasn't necessary) was add some interfacing behind the bottom (light pink) fabric for a little stability.
I Love how it turned out....and because I used the interfacing, the crayons are nice and snug in there and won't easily fall out.

First Things first…If you don’t know yet I’ve discovered Pinterest and I LOVE it. I love being able to keep track of my “I’ll try to make this someday” tutorials without having to have tons of favorites. So if you don’t have pinterest…you should! Now, back to my projects:
I made 2 aprons this year using a pattern from a book Ryan got me for my birthday last year. I love how they turned out. I forgot to take photos before giving them out (I know stupid!) But these were made for 2 of my sister in laws that I got in the sibling gift exchange. So the photos are of them sporting them. I loved this pattern and there are definatly similar aprons in my future.
I dressed up 3 of them…one with an “L” appliqué, a Ruffle bum (using premade ruffle material), and a onesie dress (I had a few problems with the dresss...ruffles will be the end of my...i can't seem to figure them out). I had to get a photo of Luna wearing at least one of them because she's so stinking cute!
I made a pillowcase dress & a matching headband for my nieces Emma and Kirsten. The girls are close together in ages and like a lot of the same things so as I’m making them stuff it’s hard not to make them the same thing. Our Christmas was kinda crazy and hectic so I didn't get pictures of the girls with their dresses on.
I also made a couple of Rice Bags to warm up in the microwave for a white elephant gift exchange, but i didn't take photos of that either :(
