See Kate Sew: Envelope Clutch Sew-Along

I often see the most adorable sew-alongs on the blogs I read.  Many times I pass them by.  Sometimes they may not be my cuppa, or may times they involve the most adorable girl clothing. For the most part though I have to see if it fits into my schedule. When I read  See Kate Sew ‘s  current sew-along information, I signed right up. Quick easy and a great potential gift project.
