I was supposed to create this little bag within 3 hours but with my instructor who is very detail oriented when it comes to sewing, I had to actually reschedule for another time to come back and finish. After about 5 1/2 hours of total "class time," I still hadn't finished my bag. Mind you, this was my first pattern I had ever attempted and again, my instructor (although VERY sweet) was a perfectionist and liked to explain things quite a bit which added even more time. I decided to just take the bag home and finish it on my own. Since it was just the flap and some hand stitching to be done, I thought I would finish it in no time! Well, I just so happened to finish it a few days ago after I made myself put everything else aside to complete this project. Let me tell you, I am soo happy I did!
Here's my little clutch I made. I am so proud of myself for actually completing my first pattern, although it was a little more difficult to read than I thought. Whew!
