Dana and Disney's Celebrate Mom? I have found some great ideas to use in the future. One that I HAD to try now, (Mother's Day is Sunday after all!), was Anna at Noodlehead's Gathered Clutch. Anna is the Queen of zipper projects. She has some beautiful ideas, and writes great tutorials. I'm sure you probably knew that, but there's my 2 cents. :) I needed to make four gifts. Two for my grandmothers, and two as thank you gifts.
I cut out four clutches late Wednesday. Luckily, I had everything I needed on hand...including the YKK zippers I'd picked up out of the bargain bin for 50 cents each. I just matched fabric in my stash to the zippers I had. I am not fond of zippers, and had to pick out the first one I made a couple times, but once I got the hang of it, these went so quickly. Total time for putting four together, including the learning curve, two hours. This is a quick, beautiful project, with pretty results. If you are still looking for a classy last minute project, go for it! Now I know what to make for my kids' teachers at the end of the school year. Thank you again, Anna. :)
