A couple years ago I pledged to have a handmade holiday, buying handmade gifts for everyone on our shopping list, and with the exception of one or two things I accomplished it. I started this series the next year to share some of my favorite handmade finds with you and I had such a good time I thought I'd bring it back again! For the next few weeks I'll be sharing some great handmade items in hopes that you'll join me in making handmade a part of your holiday!
Bags, totes, purses, clutches, whatever you call them, I love them, and today I want to share some of the extra fabulous with you! Let's start small and work our way up, shall we?
First up, this tiny clutch from Moop. Perfect for a phone, keys, an ID, and maybe some lip balm when you don't feel like hauling around a bigger bag to the store or the gym. Easy for when you're on the go - I think this could work for men or women, don't you?

Funny you should ask.
If you haven't learned this by now, I am a sucker for anything Lisa Leonard. She has a new paper and cloth collection and this tote is part of it. Maybe not something you would first pick out as a gift but I love the message!
