****Check out this fab giveaway for a gorgeous vintage cuff****
I have been wanting to make a clutch for ages. My mum has some leather hidden in her attic somewhere so while I wait I thought I’d get a bit of practice in! I was heading out for a friend’s 40th last night and thought I’d have a go at making a bag to take.
I visited our local haberdashery and picked out some of this gorgeous fabric…I loved the bold design and thought it would add a bit of pattern to my outfit!
I used the technique that I used for these little recycled purses and this iPad case…a tutorial from Skip to my Lou.
^^ I used 2 pieces of leatherette, 2 fabric strips to sew along the bottom of the leatherette, 2 pieces of lining fabric and a zip.
^^ Sew the patterned fabric along the bottom edge of the leatherette. On the right side sew topstitch along the join.
^^ Then simply follow the same instructions as here.
^^ I sewed a zigzag stitch around the edge of the patterned fabric to give it a little extra strength before turning right side round.
^^ Fold over once as above or twice (as in the top picture) for a smaller sized clutch.
^^ It’s really that easy. I’m going to make some more in some different designs!!
