Simple, elegant and stylish are three words that immediately sprung to mind when I spotted this homemade zippered clutch handbag on Carla’s Hammers & High Heels blog.
I could also include practical, cheap and, as mentioned in the comments section on the H&HH page, “truly bitching”.
It took Carla just 20 minutes to make the first clutch, the maroon one in the picture, which measures 10.0″ x 14.0″ and is “perfect for throwing a good amount of random crap in”.
The gold clutch measures 8.25″ x 11.0″ and is the perfect size for hiding/holding an iPad.
If you would like to have a go at making a similar clutch, you will need the following: leather or faux leather fabric, scissors, zipper, sewing thread, sewing machine and pins.
And, of course, the instructions!
