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!

My DIY Russian Dolls

These Russian dolls…

Everything started when I saw a bunch of Russian “Comtesse Sofia” scarves on fashion blogs. Yes, they are beautiful and I am leering at them with envy. But they are quite out of my budget for now, so I designed these little Russian doll pendants to stay in the Russian spirit. This made me go back to my childhood, when I used to make my own paper dolls (Barbies? Don’t give a ****!). Then I would use them so much that I had to make-believe play a surgeon with tape to fix them. If only I had known resin at this time: I could have made super durable dolls, like these pendants. Anyways, it was good to play with dolls again. And guess what? I even gave them names! Which one do you prefer?

Then I stuck them on black foam and assembled them to make a necklace with a colored string. The little leather tassles were found at Loisirs & Création. I found similar ones on A Little Mercerie website.
