D.I.Y. Clutch Covers

I’m all about recycling what you have and creating new looks. So I found you a video that shows a simple way of making covers for your clutch to have many looks with just one bag. Check out this video and try it out. All you need is fabric, pins, scissors, needle, thread, and a tad bit of patience!

 Interested in making a clutch from scratch? Try the Chic Foldover Clutch Purse from diystyle. With minimal supplies & only a few steps, you'll be rocking your custom design in no time!

Here's what you do:

  1. Mark and cut a panel from each of the following: suede, cotton print and the quilt batting, measuring 15" x 29".
  2. Spray the back side of the suede and the quilt batting with the spray adhesive. Gently lay the suede on top of the quilt batting and smooth out any wrinkles. Pin the edges.
  3. Stitch the two layers together across the width of the panel, at the center.
  4. Layer the quilted suede panel with the cotton lining, right sides together, pin the edges.
