Twenty One


I'm heading off to a 21st tonight, so I decided after dinner lastnight that I should probably make a gift.

I don't really have any idea what a 21 year old would like (which is a sure sign that I'm getting really old)!
I did a little bit of blog surfing for inspiration and came across this Noodlehead Tutorial via Whip Up.

I didn't follow the complete tutorial as I need to whip up something really quickly, but I followed the instructions for the gathered front and back (substituting twill tape for the fabric band as I needed something plain).


Once I had the front and back sections ready, I just sewed it as a normal zippered pouch, also adding a D-ring at the side, so that I could attach a little detachable hand strap.


I'm also popping a little matching gadget pouch inside...

Fingers crossed that the birthday girl likes them!

You have done well! I am sure the Birthday girl will love it, (you can never have too many purses or bags, the detachable strap is just adorable too!

Cute--I have 21 one year old's running around my house and I think they would approve. I bought some zipper by the yard today. I will have to try one out.

We so think alike, I printed that tutorial off last night! Great minds teehee. It looks great, I'm sure they'll love it (I would have as a 21 yr old, I think, hard to remember back that far!)

If shes into clubbing or pubbing she will love it, I have like 7 little bags similar to this perfect for phone, Id, key to get in when you get home and some money :D

Definitely a sign of getting old, happens to me all the time. I've also realised that The Bloke and I often refer to what 'the young people' are watching/listening to - another sure sign we're getting old!!!
LOVE the clutch, if the 21yo doesn't love it, send it my way...I'll even take it clubbing if I have to! (And if I can remember where the 'club' is!)
