Scrappy, Making something from almost nothing!!!

x
Today I wanted to make something from scratch, literally!!! I guess I could call this my "Little Chicken Scratch Clutch".

Remember these,

I had little bitty pieces I cut off from making the stars so in a container they went. Such bright colors, just couldn't discard them. So hear are some of the supplies used in making the clutch.

If you have netting you can put your fabric in-between two layers and stipple away. I added a little ribbon yarn that kinda matched the colors. Then I made my own trim by folding the ribbon yarn back and forth at the top of a piece of fabric and crochet a flower. I really have a problem of throwing away fabric...
