Feature Friday - Poopy Clutch

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!
