As you may know, I have three little girls and two of them are school-age. Little girl birthday invitations come home quite often, and buying gifts can add up. So, since I enjoy making little bags and purses, I have been trying to sew for every birthday girl for the past couple of years. It saves money, but I also really enjoy trying out new patterns and of course playing with fabric! My daughters also love being part of picking out the fabric and style when another birthday party invite comes home. So, with the fabric gift certificate, I ordered a bunch of half yard cuts of prints and coordinating solids for birthday girl sewing.
And since my oldest daughter is having her birthday party this weekend, I wanted to sew fabric goody bags for the girls. And with my girls on Spring Break this week, they were lots of help with deciding on which fabrics to use and picking out matching buttons.
These mini clutches were fun to make and my girls have already found a dozen uses for them - the finished size is 7 1/2" x 4" and 2" deep at the base.
