Retro clutch bag = much procrastination

I am at present meant to be doing my contract reading....so obviously I just finished off another clutch bag I was making and decided to post it on here. What do we think? I would love some feedback. Personally I think its adorably tacky in a kind of cutsey retro kind of way, but that could just be me. If its actually hideous please do let me know :p
Made the bag bit using the same pattern I used for the chinese fabric clutch I made over Christmas, but it looked a bit plain with the less glam fabric so I thought the bow would add a bit of interest (although I'm not overly happy with how its sitting on the fabric).
Not too much to report other than that, almost the end of term, woop woop xxx

Awesome dance filled (almost) weekend

Okay so Thursday to Saturday isn't a weekend as such but the word weekend doesn't mean a great deal in Cambridge anyways. Dancer friend came down to see me and it was awesomely fun. We went out on the Thursday night, and this particular friend is not only gorgeous, but likes to dress up when she goes out, so got a hilarious amount of attention from various menfolk in the vicinity.

Then on Friday night she came to watch my dance society's (CUTAZZ) annual show, which was also epically fun. Just a bit gutted that I had to be at the theatre from 3pm for a tech rehersal and so had to leave dancery friend on her own whilst I was bored to tears.

Anywho, she just drove off which is sad-making because now I'm sat here thinking I cant be bothered with four more weeks of uni, its time to go home :p BUT shes coming back in two weeks time to go to 'MOVE IT' which is yet another dancey thing. Its a massive dance exhibition in London with loads of different classes you can go to and (dangerously) lots of dance wear retailers. Can't wait :)

The fruits of procrastination

After getting a bit sidetracked by rants of various varieties I thought it was time I got back to the crafty element of the blog. So here we go :) A skirt that I've made over the course of the last week or so just from scraps of material I happened to have (houndstooth check and black velvet). Quite pleased with howit came out considering I completely just winged it, no pattern or anything. I know the picture isnt great, I'll try to get an action shot tomorrow (since im planning on wearing it anyway!)
Other than that its all very busy around here, muchos work as always, and its my dance society's annual show on friday and saturday so my dancer friend is coming down tomorrow and coming to watch on friday which should be nice :)
