DIY LEATHER CLUTCH

Hey party people! Today’s tutorial is a simple DIY LEATHER CLUTCH. This clutch has a top zipper and lining. I am a leather enthusiast, however you can make this out of any kind of material. If you don’t have a sewing machine try HOT GLUE.

This is part of my Summer Accessories series where I will be making a handful of really cool items to rock this season. Invest in some really great materials, play around with texture, color or just make everything the same color and have an instant super cute set.

I show you how, the rest is up to you!!

  1. Good Really

    My first thought on turning the zipper stop was "skive it!"…but then I realized that's a bit advanced for this video… Really enjoying these how-to's. No matter your skill level, there's always something to learn. 🙂

    Excellent tutorial and thank you for including the measurements and supply link. Am thinking if one wanted to convert it into a wrislet version they could also do it plus perhaps add a magnetic closure to keep the flap in place. Am definitely going to try it plus add a zippered pocket to its lining.

    My mind has been blown! Watching this makes me believe that I can make my own leather bag because you made it look simple and showed that you don't need some sort of industrial sewing machine and equipment to do it. And it's funny because my dad was a furrier and then worked in the leather trade many years ago so I feel like I am coming full circle back to my childhood. Excited that I can pick his brains (and maybe his contacts!!) for some leather tips! This video was fantastic. New subscriber here and I shall be trawling through your other videos. Thank you.

    Ok……I have cut out all my pattern pieces.
    Question……
    Listed is 1/4 yd fabric for lining…..
    Pattern shows as….11 1/2” by 8 1/2”
    Using any standard width fabric…..36” 45” 54”…..
    Shouldn’t it be 1/3 yd of lining for pattern piece to fit?

    Thank you sooooo much for this well explained, clear tutorial. I came here specifically to see how you top stitch leather when using a zipper. I tried doing it on a folded seam the usual way and broke three needles….smh!!! I love your lining method also for this!!!! I'm trying this today.
