Yellow and Black Clutch

I hate to even write these words but 18 months ago one of my besties noticed this photo on Instagram.

A photo posted by Jane ~ Lil Pip (@lilpipdesigns) on

She loved it and request that I make a clutch for her. Since she had a significant birthday coming up, I promised I would and tracked the fabric down (I only had a few scraps of this). Her birthday last January was quite possibly one of the hottest ever. It was insane last summer. Too hot to sew that's for sure. I gave her an IOU in her card. 

Fast forward to her birthday coming around again (oh my god - does this happen to other people!?) and I finally finished it. The main excuse for the delay is that I did a kinda mash up of a couple of patterns and kinda made it my own. I got to a certain point and doubted myself. It all came together in the end and I'm happy with the outcome. Just hope she is. She did laugh when she got two presents this year!

 What's your longest project from conception to completion?
