Sarah's Birthday Gift

The second Handmade Birthday Club gift that I sent out this month has been received by the lovely Sarah of Stitching and Bacon. Sarah's job requires her to be outside, a lot, so I thought this Timber and Leaf fold over clutch would be a nice dress up change from her work boots but still incorporate the outdoors. The shiny silver leather gives it the bling I was hoping for, to jazz up a simple clutch. Lined with a print from Bijou by Bari J and a metal zipper, this pouch finishes at approximately 11" square.
I also made her a cat pin cushion and added some little extras like chalk board stickers, cute little clothespins, and an American Quilting and Patchwork magazine, etc.

A fun fact about Sarah...her job requires her to be in a hotel a lot, so she takes her sewing machine and quilt projects with her. Now that's a dedicated quilter!
