Ethnic Clutch (and 6 months down!)

Lately, I've been going a little Ethnic (Peruvian) fabric crazy. Mostly due to the fact that I've had a bunch of this fabric for a while now and I haven't found anything to do with it (my mom actually made me a pollera). So I got really excited when I stumbled upon Swellmayde's tutorial.

If you haven't noticed, I find a lot of my inspiration from other blogs. I really suck at making tutorials, so any time I actually do something by myself without anyone else's tutorials, I just can't find a way to explain how I made it. I hope this doesn't sound prideful...but with the little experience in sewing I have, I'm darn good at looking at a picture and figuring out how to make it all by myself. No pattern or anything. I guess I have a gift for that? Well anyways, here is what I made with my beautiful Peruvian fabric:

I guess I could have picked something nicer to wear, but I took these on Sunday, and Sundays are my lazy days.

I decided to go without a button, just because I haven't found the right one. I think I like it better without the button though. It's simple and I love it.

Also, it has officially been 6 months since my boyfriend, Elder Ireland, has been out on the mission field. If you don't know, my boyfriend is serving a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day saints (yes, I'm a Mormon) in Mendoza, Argentina. He will be gone for a total of 2 years, and I'm just so excited that we only have 18 months left. I miss him, but I know what he is doing is awesome. I admire him for his dedication and love to the Gospel. Seriously though, Joey is the best.

Here are some pictures he recently sent me from his adventures in Argentina.
