How to Make your Own DIY Envelope Clutch:
The only thing I did differently from these directions is that I didn't make a template first, I just cut away on account of my being a lazy crafter. I also chose to leave a small seam allowance on the flap to fold under and sew to get rid of unfinished edges. However, if you leave yours unfinished with this kind of plastic it doesn't make a huge difference because it holds its shape so well. And people. I cannot tell a lie. These are SO easy. Seriously an under 20 minute situation to cut and sew together. You can make them during an episode of Friends and still have time to get up for a snack before it is over.
Once you have put the clutches together it is time to embellish! All I did was slap some painter's tape on one, painted the green stripe, then added a gold button. On the other I used a tack to poke holes and add the scrapbook brads. SO easy and so cute. These suckers are sturdy and fashionable and sooo simple to put together. I love! Here they are in action:
Are you “clutching” your chest with excitement?? I thought so.
