I am in love with my new homemade clutch! It’s a pretty simple thing to make too! I started off trying to make something that was outside of my sewing skill level and came up with this version instead- it’s perfect for beginners!
What you’ll need: A long strip of leather or pleather, a skinny strip and a square piece of the same material, sewing machine (or needle and thread), rhinestones and rhinestone glue (optional).
(Step 1: Fold your long piece of leather in half, make sure it is flush. Pin in place)
(Step 2: Fold the material in half and sew an end seam on each side)
(Step 3: Once you have the two ends sewed together to make a long open bag, take a blade and make a small slit in the middle of the material)
(Step 4: Take your square piece of leather and cut slits up until about 3/4 of the way up)
(Step 5: Put glue on the top 1/4 of the fabric)
(Step 6: Insert the long strip of leather through the slit you created, fold it in half and wrap the square material around it to create a tassel)
There you have it! It couldn’t be easier! I added rhinestones to mine in the shape of my and Nick’s constellation signs, it adds a little something special and unique to my creation. Make your own with any sturdy fabric!
