Watermelon Clutch

I can't recall a childhood summer without watermelon. Isn't it funny how something as sweet and simple as fruit can elicit years and years of memories? As a mom now, I'm not quite sure if I enjoy eating watermelon or watching my daughter eat it (juice dripping off the chin and everything) more. 

I wanted to make a fun clutch, but something I could easily take to the park and on date nights in the summer. So behold the watermelon clutch.  It takes less than an hour to make (including dry time). Say what?!
