I love the idea of the clutch. I love its size, and I even love its name, so descriptive and perfect and small. It's a little bit of a purse, and all of its character-qualities and fashion sense and general know-how get condensed down into this hand-sized item that is so much more tactile than its larger brethren of handbags.
And technically, I think you call this one a wristlet because of its little strap, but I'm going to brush past that little piece of data, since wristlet is kind of a stupid word, and sounds like something you'd wear under house-arrest.
Anyway, this clutch is spoken for, but I can always make more. (And FYI, friends, custom orders are a) fantastic b) priced the same as pre-made items c) available by contacting me HERE, and d) all the rage.) Its special qualities include the strap we've already been over, the adorable shade of leather which previously existed as a calf-length, shoulder-padded trench coat, custom credit-card slots and phone pocket inside, and double magnetic-snap closure.

I was talking with a friend of mine the other day about how apparently, the entire world is insane, and that occasionally the only real cure is a meal of delicious hippy pancakes. Then you forget how angry you are, and just feel happy that there's such a thing as organic unsalted butter.
And I have no transition to move you to look at this bag I recently made, as it really has nothing to do with pancakes; they just seemed important at the moment. What you could do is take this bag with you to the store and use it to carry some maple syrup home. Other features include the really great vintage tablecloth I found to make into this bag, a magnetic snap to keep things inside, a small inside pocket for things you want to find, and especially the vintage assortment of wooden beads on the strap.
Also, this bag is for sale!

Not that I have a problem per say with Pooh Bear, but his aesthetic just doesn't do it for me now that I am 29. And I know not every adult will agree with this, but for those who do, I give you the Anti-Diaper Bag.
This particular Anti-Diaper Bag I made for a custom order (you can place your own by contacting me here) and features a large front pocket with accompanying cell pocket, water-resistant recycled plastic interior, and assorted interior pockets for loose organization (fantastic!). Oh yes, and an entirely radical plastic bangle bracelet strap accent.
