I chose to do the main project, a felt clutch. The directions are for a plain clutch with contrasting sewing. I decided to embellish mine a bit. One of the alternate projects features cut outs. I liked that.
In the end, I chose to use a Martha Stewart flower stencil. I cut out one flower, stenciled others, and then stenciled blowing petals. I used some gold plastic "jewels" as the flower centers—and they perfectly matched the yellow embroidery floss that came in the box.
