I wanted to take some progress pics of the cake clutch while the sun was still out. It’s not done yet. It still needs the zipper installed (which also has the cherry zipper danglies) and possibly a purse snap for the flap. The pom poms and button are just laying on top, un-attached.
Here was the sketch:
Here’s the real deal:
There’s a pocket inside, too. You can also see the D-rings to optionally snap on a chain.
It actually came out a bit smaller than I had planned! But it’s still pretty cute. I carried a mohair blend with gold sparklies along with my Cascade 220 in the white layer cake. Pink + gold = <3 I also decided to make a zipper pouch (no zipper yet). No pocket inside. No flap. Just a pouch. It also came out pretty cute. The cookie button is just laying on top for the pic. I don't think I'm keeping it. Now I kinda want to stick a pearl there!
I carried a blue mohair blend with silver sparklies in the Cascade 220 for the blue “frosting.” The mohair blend with sparklies is pretty cool! But it’s also $20+ a ball, so I don’t think I would use it regularly. I might try to find a sparkle alternative.
So yup, I gotta sew in some zippers, maybe glue some pom poms, and I’m set! The blue one is still damp, but, it’s the best I can do for my trip tomorrow!
I’m still working on a grapefruit scarf to take, too.
So I must go. But I will leave you with this important message:
(Yeah… that was actually part of a 4 minute long video about my weird wallet collection, which I decided was boring!)
(p.s. anyone know a WordPress plug-in for automatically adding a signature at the bottom of your journal entry? I’d uploaded my Twinkie Chan “signature” onto Photobucket, but apparently I ran out of bandwidth. Would be great to not have to enter it in for every entry!)
