Keyka Lou and my Best Bag

eyka Lou patterns are so stinkin' cute. I'm so glad I found them. They provide great patterns with easy-to-follow instructions. I learned some new techniques, got sewing tips and was able to make a cute bag in about an hour. I've added their Fold-Over Clutch pattern to my Etsy shop (yes, my Etsy shop is LIVE at www.etsy.com/shop/MollyBlossomDesign) as The Sadie Clutch.
I've made several, but I wanted to share my very favorite so far.
It should be no surprise she's made out of the same great Heather Bailey fabric I made my first Cosmo from...

What I Wore Wednesday

his type of post seems to be all the rage and, while I won't promise to do them every week, I may do them every once in a while.
The only reason this is even being done on a Wednesday is because it took me this long to upload the photos from the weekend trip hubby and I took.

Here's the deets on the outfit. I wore it to the 20th anniversary celebration of the University of Georgia Ballroom Performance Group. I was in the group from 2000-2002 and performed in their yearly show, Ballroom Magic, which is what we went to see.

Purple cardigan - Target clearance rack - $10
Mustard shirt - AzWell - gulp $30
Black bead necklace - Francesca's clearance pile - $2
Flower clip - Amy Butler scraps, made by me
Furry Zebra belt - Goodwill - $1
Coral fake leather clutch - T J Maxx - $3
Jeans - Express clearance rack - $11
Strappy heels - Goodwill - $4

So, except for the cost of the shirt (which really, I have to say, inspired the whole outfit), I stayed in the same general mode of dressing as Morgan at Meet Virginia, who I was trying to emulate, both in style and in thriftiness.
How'd I do?
I have to credit my hubby with the awesome pic.  :)
