Before we get started today and want to say a BIG, GIANT THANK YOU to all of you who offered to donate something to the Cure JM Auction. As I mentioned in my last post, I didn't want to be a downer, but I also knew we could do better. Thank you for making me smile. You guys are awesome.
As I was out in blogland the other night I came across the "Poopy Clutch" by Melissa Esplin of I Still Love You. I saw it and thought it was so cute and then I thought, hmmm she must have spelled "poppy" wrong. Then I kept reading. It's a little clutch made especially for diapers and wipes - a poopy clutch! While I've seen something like that before, I've never seen one so adorable.
I've been wanting to make the switch from a giant diaper bag to a purse and this makes it work oh so well! Hers fits right in her purse.
So, I found my nearest Tandy Leather store and talked to the kind man there for quite a while. I found this giant piece of leather I liked and it was on clearance. Her tutorial includes a free PDF pattern and it was really easy to follow and to make. In fact, I must confess that since I planned to give it to the Cure JM auction I made an extra one to keep....and an extra one for a sister. I couldn't stop. Anyhow, here's how mine turned out.
I love it and I'm excited to use the leftover leather for another project. We'll see!
If you've never been to Melissa's blog you need to pop over for a visit. She has some serious skills, great ideas, and beautiful pictures. Here's the tutorial. Thanks for sharing your fantastic pattern with us, Melissa!
