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:
very cool! love the placemat
Great idea! 🙂 Can’t wait to make this as well, Have to add it to my list 🙂

Loved your tutorial so much I made a placemat clutch and have linked it to your tutorial on my blog. You have done such a lovely job.
I stumbled across your placemat clutch shortly after I posted this blog post as a guest post about placemat pillows… http://buzzmills.typepad.com/blog/2012/01/placemat-pillows.html
I reposted the post over the weekend and have since included your clutch too, hope you don’t mind ( i did link back here!!) I liked it so much!
Where can we buy this clutch I love it!!!!
I added straps to the clutch to make a sort of bag. Too cute! Thanks for the tutorial.
