Much to my relief, I finished sewing all my handmade Christmas gifts over the weekend. I crossed the finishing line with an artsy folder and artsy pencil roll for two special 5 year old girls.

I also made 5 artsy clutches, Amy Carol style (see below). All were made with scraps and buttons from my op-shop button jar. Why 5? Well every time we go away I'm driven slightly mad by bags and boxes full of mixed-up stuff. This is my attempt to maintain order in my luggage and the back of my car. Here's my plan:
- crotchet clutch: for newly purchased crotchet bits -
I'm teaching myself to crotchet these holidays.
- jewelery clutch -
- make-up clutch -
- personals clutch -
- electric cords, chargers, cameras, batteries clutch -
Fours days to go, 2 pairs of boardshorts and the sleeve of a blouse and I'm done. The countdown is on.
