Oh how relevant this blog title is. Last week I got to sewing up a zipper clutch – it was the last moment of calm before the storm of a very nasty flu knocked myself and the rest of the family out. So while I made a clutch bag I’m also desperately clutching at straws to get myself and the boys settled in Hong Kong. Two steps forwards, one step back and all that. Crazy Times.

Focusing on the positive, this project was so easy and so satisfying. I’ve wanted to use the Tula Pink Octopus forever and I love the neutral hide on the outside and cheeky colour on the inside. The tassel was a cinch too. Would you all like a tutorial for this one?
