DIY: Fold Over Clutch

The hottest accessory of the season, a simple bright clutch, is a must have for every girl. But what price will you pay for this look? $160-$180 for a Claire Vivier Clutch, $95 for a Comme des Garcons Clutch, or $50-$68 for an American Apparel Clutch, …   Well I am here to show you how to make it for around $30!  Inspired by this post, I decided to make my own. The key is to finding a sturdy leather in a bright color and buying about 2 square feet (or a small hide) and an exposed metal zipper with colored zipper tape. Simply cut 2 squares of leather measuring about 12 1/2″ by 12 1/2″ (this leaves 1/2″ for seam allowance).  Cut 2 small strips about 5/8″ wide to finish the zipper at either end. First sew the zipper to top edges with 5/8″ strips at either end of the zipper. Leaving the zipper slightly open, finish sewing the other 3 sides of the bag together and turn inside out…. and you are set to walk out the door! Here is my finished product….
