I made myself a black clutch with some leftover fabric from a coat I sew two years ago. I love the already embroidered fabrics we can find in the fabric stores and I could not resist this black one. I used recycled fabric from old pants for the lining of the bag. I found a black zipper and a piece of black ribbon on my shelves. Now I have a chic-looking clutch for evenings out. And it cost almost nothing.
I have prepared a printable tutorial that can be found here in English and in French. Maybe it will inspire you to make one for yourself, or to give. It only takes a few hours to make (one hour if your fast!). If you do not have the material at home, buying everything would still be a lot cheaper then buying a clutch that chic. Once finished, the bag measures 6″ x 11″.
Material needed to make this black clutch:
- Black fabric for the outside
- Black fabric for lining
- Black zipper
- Black sewing thread
- Black ribbon
There was an oddly-shapped scrap left on my table. I could not throw it away, so I made a little pouch with it. It turned out quite pretty. Big enough for a few cards. I have included instructions for it in the black clutch tutorial.
If you make the clutch or pouch, please let me know. I would love to hear about it! Thank you for stopping by,
