So…Friday is my 10-year high school reunion. I’m going, because the curious part of me that “has hobbies and sees what happens” knows that if I don’t attend and see how bad it really is, I’m always going to wonder. (Also, I thought, “What if someone in a book I write needs to go to a high school reunion and I don’t know the exact feelings of displacement? I’d better go.”)

Of course I made a dress for it (pictures next week). But I also decided to make a clutch, which gives you something to do with your hands when you’re standing around talking at an alcohol-less event.

Obviously it still needs a lining, but it’s turning out well.

Most importantly, it’s nice and roomy, as Toby shows…

…because it needs to hold my flask. To quote the best high school reunion movie ever,
“Who needs hard alcohol?”
“I do!!”
