DIY: Clutch


{American Apparel Clutch}

I know a lot of people (myself included) that want/wanted the American Apparel clutch but just couldn't justify spending £46 on what quite frankly is an oversized pencil case. I was tempted to buy it once, then snapped out of that moment of madness and remembered that I could sew my own at a fraction of the price.

I wanted to make a clutch like this as a leaving present for a friend of mine, but I wanted to make it a bit different so it wasn't just another pencil case and after wandering around one of my favourite haberdashery shops, I decided upon making something slightly different:
clutch
clutch
clutch
clutch

I'm making more as I want one for myself, but I'm thinking about doing different styles and putting them up for sale on the Strut Mode Shop, so keep looking out for that.

  1. Great DIY!

    I've been working on something slightly similar, but a leather envelope for my ipad. Unfortunately I have to sew it by hand so keep putting it off.
