Bridesmaids Clutches

I have made 2 sets of Bridesmaids Clutches as gift ideas made from Keyka Lou patterns.

The first set is made from the Inset Zip Clutch & Pouch

Set of 5 Bridesmaid Clutches


And the second set I finished today is made from Zip Clutch (without the front sash)

Set of 3 Bridesmaid Pouches


Both now available in my etsy store.




Wow, this is my hundredth post and I am having a fantastic time sharing what I’ve made and the antics of my lovely little boys.

I started this blog back in January to showcase the little craft works I made during those times when my 2 little guys were napping or playing on their own.

Then I discovered I liked making things and have had the opportunity to sell some of my stuff. I’ve made bags, children’s hats and booties and now also women’s accessories.

I thought I’d share the love and give those that come by to stop and read my little blurbs a nice little treat.


For this 100th blog, I am having



The first is a Yellow and White Clutch Keychain Wristlet

 This clutch is in the medium size measuring:

7.5″ wide x 4.5″ high x 2″ deep (19cm x 11cm x 5cm)

It comes with a detachable keychain wristlet strap with a clip/fast ring than can be used on its own. This clutch is big enough to hold your phone, cards, and some cash.


The second one is a Camera Case Wristlet

This adorable case is a handy little wristlet to hold your camera in style. It features one main pocket on the front to hold your camera and one back pocket for your trinkets, like extra memory card and batteries.

The strap is just the right length to slip over your wrist or loop through your belt loop or handbag.

You can also use it to carry your phone, keys and cash.

It is padded with batting to provide some protection for your camera.

NB: Camera and memory card NOT included in the Giveaway.

Zip Clutch

The Zip Clutch pattern from Keyka Lou’s etsy was the second pattern I bought from her, but this is the first time I’ve tried it. Not too sure why it took me so long (purchased it end of March), maybe the zipper bit?

Anyhoo, I tried it today as I wanted to try out one of the fabrics I bought from IKEA last night (with 5 other fabrics + another table to use as my cutting table).


The pattern comes in 3 different sizes – small, medium and large. I tried out the medium one with dimensions: 7.5″ wide x 4.5″ high x 2″ deep.

It looks quite nice actually. Next time, I will put a little pocket inside to hold a couple of cards (ATM card and driver’s license) + put a wristlet strap. I will try it out in the large size in the same fabric and see how that one goes.


Here’s the clutch with Zach’s Little Lamb pillow (Josh wanted me to take a photo of the bag with it :)).


Remember the mess I make of our dining table?


It constantly had my projects and mess on it and I had to clear it every meal time. So last night, I bought another table from IKEA which I now use for my cutting and mess.


As for the boys, they’ve been SO wonderful. Their little personalities are coming through more now and hubby and I can see that they’re gonna be such great mates (spoke too soon … they’re just wrestling for a toy now :D)

Zach taking it easy

Big smile from Joshy

Here Josh is pointing to his toy plane which he wanted me to take a photo of


I have a few custom orders to do this month + make lots of bags by next Thursday to try to sell at another retail store in Lennox, NSW. So better get crackin’.
