I was so excited last week to hear the announcement for the Winter Pinterest Challenge! This challenge was the brain child of two fabulous bloggers (Sherry & Katie) and each time they invite two additional bloggers to help host. The point of the challenge is simple, stop pinning and start doing. Pick a project you pinned and you have been putting off and get busy.
A big shout out to our fabulous hosts this time around:
- Sherry from Young House Love
- Katie from Bower Power
- Megan from The Remodeled Life
Michelle from Decor & The Dog
For this time around I am FINALLY diving into a project on my new sewing machine. I have been eyeballing this adorable bow clutch that I pinned (my pin) to my sewing board months ago, way before I even owned a sewing machine. This project comes from the creative mind of Whitney at Elm Street Life. She wrote a fantastic step-by-step tutorial showing how she made this lovely clutch. So here is the final product:
I am so happy with how it turned out being this was the first project I have ever made on a sewing machine. It is not perfect but I love it! I bought all my fabric from fabric.com.
The exterior green is European Linen Fabric Fig and the inside liner is Kona Cotton Meringue. I got the zipper, thread and interfacing at Joann’s. I bought more supplies to make this again in purple with pink liner too!
This will be my third time around participating. My past challenge projects include the Fall Challenge with my Shell Bib Necklace
and the Summer Challenge with my Canvas Wall Map.
Keep and eye out this week for a full tutorial on my experience making this cute clutch. Here is one more picture to enjoy before the full tutorial is posted:
