Thank you once again Sheena for sharing this!
January... time to start working on taxes. Every year at this time, I think to myself.... "WHY DID I NOT KEEP BETTER TRACK OF THINGS!!!???" This year I just added another New Year's Resolution! I am going to do better at keeping receipts and track of my mileage for business & charity things.
Did you know:
-Tithing you pay at church is tax deducible?
-Your mileage to and from paying tithing and to charity events such as church planning meetings, visiting teaching, goodwill donations, etc or tax deducible?
-hobbies are tax deducible? As well as mileage to and from getting craft supplies!!!!!???
Now, I am not a tax professional, but I heard these things from my tax professional.
To keep better track of my HOBBY EXPENSES, CHARITY DONATIONS, and BUSINESS EXPENSES.... I created a receipt clutch and it fits a mini journal for me to write down mileage!!!
Receipt and Record Clutch
This is my first "non baking" tutorial, so don't judge!
I am not a professional seamstress. I got this cute fabric from Dana at Saturday Mornings. Thanks Dana, and as I promised... here is what I made:
1/2 yard of 2 different fabrics
small chunk of interfacing or thick fabric
hot glue glue
needle and thread
fabric scissors or rotatory cutter & mat
Choose what fabric you want for the outside of the clutch and for the pocket dividers. Cut an 8 by 12 1/2 and an 8 by 16.
Cut a piece for the inside of the clutch that is 8 by 12 1/2. If you are using interfacing cut a piece 8x12 1/2 and iron on to backing of the inside fabric, or cut a piece of thick fabric to use instead (8 by 12 1/2), like me, if you are giggity ghetto you have no interfacing.
PS. We are talking inches here.
See all my 8 by 12 1/2 inch pieces?
Ruffle: Then cut a strip that is 3 1/2 inches by 19 inches. Use what ever fabric you want your ruffle to be.
I made a little rosette and hand stitched it onto the front. GO HERE to see where I learned to make the rosette.
Now, go organizer your receipts in your new clutch!!!
SO how'd I do on my first sewing tutorial???
