Project: Pleated Clutch

I know I promised pics of the projects and things I learned in class. I keep forgetting to bring my camera. Sorry. So far this is what I have been doing:

Week 1: Intro to the class

Week 2: Machine Orientation

Week 3: Plastic Bag Dispenser

This past Thursday we made the plastic bag dispenser in class. It was quite easy for me to sew. But I did learn how to measure and cut it so that the grain of the fabric won't stretch. Heh. Who knew it was this complicated.


Tonight I decided to try to make a pleated clutch with a tutorial I found on craftster. I wanted to make it w/ a zipper on top instead of a clasp so things don't fall out. It was a lot harder than I thought it would be. Maybe I should've followed directions. What do you think?
