'Cruisey chic' Clutch


My accomplishment for tonight. A chic dark blue corduroy clutch with pretty marine trim.
The clutch is made with the same KeykaLou Curvy Clutch pattern as my wedding clutch but this one is the large version. 

Tomorrow I will start making a pattern for a dress. The fabrics have already been bought and pre-washed. Yay!

Amigurumi

Introducing Cuddly the Koala, my first try in amigurumi. These tiny crochet figurines are very easy and quick to make. I think I might have a zoo of them soon!

LOVEly clutch

This is what I finished yesterday. It's got a little hint inside of what the clutch is made for. Yes, my wedding purse is full of love!

Wristlet pouch

This cute little wristlet pouch was made for a cute little 5 year old girl as a present. Any ideas what to fill it with? This one was made with the same instructions from annanaarteet.blogspot.com as the previous pouches.

Ship ahoy! Bag

Here is my sailing inspired bag made from the Buttercup Bag pattern by MadeByRae. I have modified the pattern a bit and made the bag bigger.
I love the colors of the bag and it will definitely join me for the Mediterranean cruise next month!

Wallet

I decided to make myself a wallet. This one didn't turn out so well because the outer shell was too short. I had to redo it and now it is totally usable. A bit too thin for my liking though. I will try and find a better pattern with some more volume to it.

Pink travel wallet

I couldn't find a small enough travel wallet in the shops that would still have room for all my travel papers so I decided to make one. This is the first born and needs a few little changes still and a better finish. But overall quite nice and functional!

Buttercup Bags

My first bag for a long while! The little grey bag was made with MadeByRae's Buttercup Bag pattern. Very cute but quite small. Excellent as an evening bag but not for everyday use for someone like me who carries half a world with her every day and some crocheting as well!
The black bag is a bigger version of the same bag. I made alterations to the pattern all by myself after very accurate scientific calculations ;)

Pouches, many pouches

I made a few pouches today for all the little things lying at the bottom of my bag. I used the instructions from annanaarteet.blogspot.com which were really easy and simple to follow (if you know Finnish).
