Something New in the shop :: And a little Giveaway


Hello again friends. I am so sorry for the long wait but it has been one of those weeks when you get this great idea in your head and you just have to run with it. I finally finished some sketching from a request for a dear friend. He is 86 years old and adores his kindle. He was keeping it in a bubble wrap mailer to protect it.

After promising to make him one manly enough for him to use, I also thought up a second design for the shop. Introducing the Kindle Clutch



I just love those days when Ideas just come together the way it seems to in your head. So many ideas are hard to put on paper, let alone SEW them.
So when this idea came out just the way I wanted, well I was just thrilled.
They are now available in the SHOP!

ADDITION:: The clutch up for the giveaway is done in the grey print by amy butler for everyone who is curious. I also just thought what a great Diaper clutch this could be?


Do you have a kindle or nook? Or maybe even a great use for this cute little clutch? Well Great I have an extra. The sample I made came out so good it would have been shop worthy. However I attached my shop tag to the front, then later decided I didn't want to do that.

So if you don't mind the tag that says Sew-Fantastic on the front flap. leave me a comment about what you think of the new shop item. I will draw a lucky winner On Monday afternoon.
Good luck Everyone, and Happy Sewing!

  24. Great idea! And way better than a bubble wrap mailer! Love the wrist strap on it too. These could be used for carrying anything, not just electronics. Nice job, and as always, the coolest fabrics!

    My husband has a Kindle, and my oldest Stepdaughter has one. We're probably getting the youngest SD one for her birthday and that would be the PERFECT addition to her gift...

  52. I honestly have never heard of a kindle, but I'm sure I'm just behind the times, and that these clutches won't stay an Etsy secret for long.
