placemat purse

I know there is a bunch of tutorials around the blog world that have to do with table placemats made into clutches so I guess this is my version...
I started with these supplies two placemats and some ruffled white fabric



I placed them on top of each other the colorful side will be the inside



I pulled the placemat up just enough so there would be a flap to flip over



sewed a button on (yes its crooked i don't think my three year old will mind :) )



With the white ruffled fabric i made a huge marshmallow fluff flower and add a handle I love those little balls hehe :o)
I made the pants ( they look crooked I know) but there not so I made this entire outfit, yes parts still need to be sewn but you know a mom of two doesn't get very much time to do much  in one sitting :)

Peace Love and Cupcakes
