Leather Clutches DIY – No sewing! #1

Leather clutch DIY

Hello you!

I hope you are enjoying the first days of Spring… or staying at your place making a ton of crafts! I prepared a series of articles to show you how to design original leather clutches — with no sewing! Those who follow me on Facebook or Twitter have already seen some examples from when I was still living in Lyon. I bought these leather falls “Chez Boudin,” which literally means “sausage” in French XD

Anyways, though it may not sound like it, Boudin is one of the suppliers for some famous Parisian “Maisons de Haute Couture.” Boudin is a great location to find excellent quality leather for only 10€ per kilo. Inspired by these great materials, I started making clutches without sewing. My tip? Neoprene transparent glue: it stays supple and dries quickly.

The tutorial for this scaly clutch is right below. See you soon for the second episode of this series!

Holographic Clutches DIY

So Jet Set with my pochette

“I’m so jet-set with my clutch!”

Bonjour!

I have made these two clutches with foam and holographic paper. I wanted them to fit my computer and my graphic tablet. I have seen various holographic clutches on blogs like P.S.- I made this, but I needed my clutches to be solid enough to protect what is inside so I used foam. And I was really inspired by this Vogue purse below, so I tried to reproduce the design of it ;) The tuto and the pattern are below!
