So, have you ever had a day where u just didn’t know what to wear? Well that was me so I threw on the first thing I could find, paired it with some maH-Jor statement accessories,edgy sneakers and Voila (wah-lah), I discovered the easiest, chicest outfit EVER! I love the way denim on denim looks and they definitely don’t have to match!I actually prefer that they don’t. This EASY outfit that I’m wearing is a light pair of jeans with a darker jean button down shirt (both thrifted). My Necklace is from Intriguing designs (my mom’s jewelry line) and My cross earring and gold wedge sneakers are from Go Jane, one of my newest obsessions!!! Shout out to my baby Kenny DeShields for being my photog. Check his music out new album coming soon <3!
So it’s getting warmer outside and that means LESS CLOTHES whoohoo, but to me that also means smaller accessories. In the spring and summer I don’t really like lugging around big purses. I like to feel as light as possible. However I only had two clutches and they were black. A few months ago I found a really cool basket weave clutch from Target and that clutch inspired me to tinker around with making my own clutch and that’s when I found out HOW EASY it was I mean seriously EASY!.
The clutches that I made literally took less than 5minutes, except for the multicolored tribal print clutch, that one was a bit more intricate but still easy.
All clutches except for the tribal print clutch where made out of place mats that I scored from the thrift store for a $1.00!! Yes you read right! Place mats are the perfect size and the stiffer ones have the perfect sturdiness for this project. The tribal one is made from fabric, which i lined with a place mate.
There are a few easy steps while making your purse but first lets start with the materials that you will need.
You will need:
- Fabric or Place Mat
- Glue -Gun (I prefer the glue gun) or Fabric Glue
- decorative buttons
- razor (to attach buttons)
This is a Place Mat
Fold the place mat over a little more than half to create a nice sized pouch.
Super glue the sides down.
add Velcro as a fastener.
Add decorative buttons, flowers, etc to the front of the clutch or keep it plain!
Now you have a one of a kind clutch that you can rock all spring and summer! NJOY!;)
For a dressier clutch try a flower… My mom made this one, after I taught her!;) XO
