Today I wanted to pop in and share a fun DIY that my mother-in law and I made last week while she was visiting. I had a vision in my head for a while and with my mother-in law's sewing talent, we created this easy fold over clutch within a couple of hours.
Zipper clutches are always a favorite sewing project, they can be used for so many things! The perfect date night clutch, a lovely handmade gift, a travel jewelry holder, make up case – you name it! Add scalloped leather to the bottom, in GOLD, and you now have zipper clutch perfection.
It's simple enough for a beginner, even with a zipper involved! I take you through step by step with very clear instructions. This simple clutch is classy and clean, perfect for everyday use. It measures 10.5” across and 5.5” tall (when folded over) and 9” tall when open.
I wanted to make a sweet little clutch to use on our date, something fun and flirty. Something cute and eye-catching that speaks of the warmer spring weather we should be having. And with enough room for my phone, wallet, and a few different lipgloss, you know, just the essentials, lol!
I’m a big fan of making gifts for the holidays, and if they are simple to make, well, then I’m even more on board. This bleach-dotted clutch is just that. I’ve always enjoyed the different things you can do with bleach and have wanted to try out this technique for some time. It has just the right “wow factor” while being simple enough to make for everyone on your gift list!
This is one of those statement accessories that would look great with a neutral outfit… if only I owned one. I might have to go buy a white shirt. There’s something I love about the feeling of a clutch, the way it snuggles under your arm, and the way you can never totally ignore it– not like a messenger bag that just gets flung to your backside. The clutch is a real participant in the ensemble.
A couple of hours and you will have a trendy staple to match your casual jeans-&-t-shirt outfit or even a fancy one. It’s up to you to decide which color to choose. And if your choice will be black and some matching color than why not wear it with a dress?
