My First Summer DIY Project



Hi Friends, I hope the week is going great. The summer is almost coming to an end. Can you believe it? How time flies when you are busy. Well, I have been trying my hands on some DIY projects here and there and the animal prints clutch in the picture above is actually  my first summer DIY. Animal prints clutches have been on the scene for a while now but I did not own any until I had the inspiration to change one of my old clutches. The clutch I used is the one featured below in the pics which I bought from Target last summer. I found some yards of this cool woolen animal fabric in my fabric pile at home; as you might know, I used to visit the fabric store to buy fabrics and sewing knick knacks although I do not know how to sew; with a sewing machine, that is. I forgot to take pictures while doing the project but it was pretty easy. I used a measuring tape to measure around the old fold-over clutch while it was all straightened out, then cut out the pattern on the animal prints fabric with a pair of scissors. I put the wrong sides of the cut fabric together; a needle, a spool of black thread and thirty-five minutes later, I was done sewing a pouch. I turned the fabric around and slipped the original black clutch into the new pouch I made and used glue to attach them together.

The outfit above is what I wore to my friend's Mickey mouse themed birthday party. I wanted to put on something colorful and the denim shirt and orange pant is as colorful as you can get. I'll put more pictures up later. Do you see the Buddha  statue with a "welcome sign" above his head behind me on the neighbor's front porch that photo bombed my pic? It brought a smile to my face…:-). I pray that your week be full of happy moments and for joy like a river to overflow in your heart the whole month through in Jesus name; Amen.

May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope.

  3. I never thought about changing the fabric on one of my purses. That is a genius idea and it turned out great. I love the outfit you wore to the party, too. I didn't even notice that Buddha statue until you pointed it out, lol.
