Revisiting A Past Finished Object: Day 6 of Knit and Crochet Blog Week

Here I am on Day 6 of Knit and Crochet Blog Week revisiting this finished object:

My purple felted clutch was finished last fall. I didn't really have a plan for it's use. I stuck some crochet hooks in it and shoved it in a drawer.

Then, one fateful day my son wanted a case for his Nintendo DS. I couldn't bring myself to pay the price wanted for a poor quality vinyl case. Idea! What about the clutch?

Problem. Would a thirteen year-old want a case for his cool Nintendo DS knit by his mommy?

Answer: Yes!

He thought it was the "coolest" idea. He was so excited to have it. Apparently, his friends agree as to its coolness. In fact, I believe it is actually "epic". The purple colour must increase its cool factor.

I just like seeing him so delighted to use something created by his mom.

Happy Day 6!

That is such a cute story! And the clutch/nintendo case is very pretty (although you might not want to tell your son I used that word :)

Your boy is a keeper! Any 13 year old who LOVES a felted clutch made by mom gets mad props in my book!

I'm a mom to three teenage boys and I totally understand the challenges of finding fun things to make for them. A Nintendo case is perfect!

Awesome! I love when someone wants the things I've knit, even though they weren't knit for them. (Or crocheted!) That's a really cute clutch. A blogger friend of mine made one for me and I love it! I use it for keeping small things when I travel.
