DIY: gathered clutch tutorial

project #5 of 31 in august
thought i would take a step in a more 'girly' direction.
i would love to make myself one of these clutches,
or it could make the perfect addition to a birthday present!
luckily, anna from noodlehead put together a how-to!
ah. if only i could be a pro at sewing like she is.
i have no idea how to even operate a sewing machine,
let alone make a gorgeous clutch.
but all we can do it try, right?
like the buff guy from P90X says:
"do your best and forget the rest"
haha. (weird little tangent)
this is why i collect tutorials, i could use all the help i can get.
just wait till you see anna's other fun tutorials!
you will be on her blog for hours.
