(Looking for Giveaway Week prizes and winner announcements? Click HERE)
Giveaway Week is wrapping up. The first winner was announced today. Remember that there are still four giveaways left, so get your entries in! I’d like to step back into my world for a minute and share another of the craft swaps from a few weeks ago. For this swap, my partner was Kris from Everywhere Orange. and she made me this awesome zipper clutch.
I really love everything about this purse. Every one of those zippers is functional, and the color combo is exactly “me.” Thank you so much, Kris! It’s perfect! She writes more about it here and has a few more pictures.
If you pop over to her blog, you’ll notice that Kris kind of likes the color orange. A little bit. So, I came up with this goldfish purse for her:
It’s really more style than function because of the size, but I still like the way it turned out. I backed the circles with iron-on interfacing before cutting them out to help reduce the fraying, but I always like a little messiness. The brass chain is put on there using lobster clasps, so it can be adjusted a bit or hung off of a belt loop.
