For my mother’s birthday, I decided to make scarves and clutches. One set is the subject of this post. In fact, I made two sets–one for my mother and one for myself. To make those, I used a long skirt I have made a few years ago. I was not wearing it much and the fabric makes fabulous scarves and bags. They certainly add glamour to a pair of jeans.
The scarves were simply hemmed. I folded the edges twice, ironed and sew with a straight stitch.
I made the clutches exactly the same way I did my White Clutch. You can find my tutorial to make this clutch here. I added three wooden beads on each side of the zipper. My beads are the perfect match for the zippers’ color.
For the lining, I used fabric from old pants. The back pocket of the pants is now an inside pocket of a bag.
I cut away the flap and removed the velcro with a seam ripper. Making a pocket could not be easier.
