Leopard Clutch DIY





Leopard has been a trend that took me a while to embrace and wear. I still have very few things that are leopard print, partially because my hubby sort of hates it. I've been seeing this clutch everywhere and couldn't stop wishing for one. But as I said in yesterday's post, it's way out of my budget so I resorted to simple DIY project to fix this problem. Here is a step by step process for your one of a kind, but sort of like Claire V. looking clutch. 

YOU WILL NEED:
- clutch./old cosmetics case
- J.Crew catalog (or any kind of paper to lay your glue gun on)



Step One: Lay out your clutch and measure how much fabric you are going to need. Cut the sides and length allow for 2 inches seam (and of course for human error). Always cut more for the sides (4 inches) that way you can just cut off the extras.



Step Two: apply the hot glue and press it into the clutch. Be careful with fingers and make sure not to add too much glue so it doesn't look messy.


Step Three; Glue the fabric to the back, applying glue to 3-4 inches at a time, then pressing the fabric so it sets. Wait for it to cool and continue on with the rest.


This is not is looks now.


Step Four: Apply hot glue and press the sides in. Make sure not to have to much fabric, so measure it first and cut anything unnecessary.



Step Five: Hot glue the front and fold it over. Cut the whole for your magnet zip with a sharp knife. Apply a little glue all around it and press to seal. Don't worry if it doesn't come out perfect, it will be covered with the envelope top. 
And done!




Style your clutch for months and years to come, while people ask you where you got such a pretty piece of accessory. Make sure to PIN any of the image from today's post for later reference.
