Blingy Mommy Bag and Clutch Wallet

This is my newest design. It was inspired by my C'ville Purse Swap partner who is an accountant AND a mom of a 9-month old! So here were my thoughts...a bag big enough to hold of practical/professional quality, yet be fun and funky....a place to put a checkbook and keys without losing them in the bottom of the bag....

Here's what we got!!! **Thanks Stef for being my model!**

My partner loves the black/pink/white combination. I used Patons Merino wool in Black, Too Pink and Winter White. I also used black fun fur in a few rows and on the top to add just a touch of "phouf". I also used some pink pony beads with an Aurora Borealis finish on them. It adds just a little shimmer....

The coordinating clutch was so simple to make. I happened to find a bag (in my stash) of the coolest vintage wood buttons and used one on the clutch for a closure.
I WILL be sharing this pattern for free. I am currently testing it and once I am completed doing that and have all the 'snafoos' taken care of...I will let you have it! Plus, I want to get my swap partners reaction to it. I hope she loves it as much as I do!
