I’m revisiting a tutorial from the past! The placemat clutch tutorial…..but I’ve changed the design
(read more after the jump)
I found this pretty red and blue placemat at World Market:
To make the foldover clutch I first folded the placemat in half…..
……and sewed up both sides:
I used a seam ripper to open up a few stitches in the top of the placemat…….
…..and inserted a loop of elastic. Then sewed the opening shut.
I folded the placemat down to gauge where this button would need to be attached:
And then carefully attached the button:
A finished clutch or maybe even just a makeup bag!
So bright and colorful…..the perfect addition to an outfit!
Make sure to check out the foldover clutch I made using a placemat from the 99 cent store…..and a tutorial for the fabric flower I added to the front:
