  I've been wanting to make one of these for a while and finally got around to doing it so I decided why not make it into a tutorial so all you lovely people out there can make one too! It's a leather clutch that is kind of a pouch style that I've seen on a couple blogs a loooooong time ago and once or twice recently. So here's how I did it:

  • Faux or real leather
  • Scissors
  • A sewing machine and thread
  • A zipper
  • A needle(maybe, only if it gets too hard to sew with a machine)
 Cut out the leather a little bit bigger(or smaller) than you would like it to be to allow room for sewing on the zipper and around the sides. For the blue clutch I just randomly cut it and for the brown one I measured it with that binder thing.
 Pin one side of the zipper with the right side up(the side that you want to be on the utside when it's finished).
 And seeeewwwwwwwww...
Then repeat on the other side.
 Flip the zipper over so it's on the wrong side(the inside of the bag) and sew it down. I only did this on the brown clutc but it made it look more professional and made it easier to zip and unzip.
Now put the right sides together and sew around all the edges.
 Turn it right side out...
   Yay it's pretty AND easy! I hope you try it! If you do post a picture of it on your blog and send me a link in the comments! If you liked this post and want to see more you can subscribe to me on bloglovin :) Thanks for reading.


(p.s. this tutorial was made for a LEATHER or FAUX LEATHER pouch/clutch. If you were to make it with a lighter fabric I think it would be best to put a lining in it so it's sturdier. If you want me to make a tutorial on that let me know in the comments)
