I have a confession. I have a George Costanza wallet. Don't know what that is? That's the wallet that is too fat to sit on. In my case, it's too fat to close. No, not because it's loaded with cash - I wish! Because it's loaded with all those stupid reward cards. And I also shove insurance and gift cards in there. It's awful.
The other day I took my daughter to the doctor and when my cards went spilling all over the floor I decided it was time to deal with this. I had heard so many good things about Keyka Lou patterns that I went and checked her site out. I found this adorable Zippered Clutch and knew it would solve my problems! Bonus - it comes in 3 sizes!! I made the small one.
It's about 6" wide and 3.5" tall. Don't you just want to eat it up?! I'm so in love with those hounds tooth prints too. I may have to get more even though I haven't used up all I have!
The directions and details are so great on this. I think this is the best zipper I've ever done and it's because of the way she puts these together.
I used some Tula Pink Plume for the lining. That's my wallet behind it holding it up. That gives you a sense of scale.
