|Navy Blue Clutch that I made|
I mean it wasn't THAT bad, but boy did I get frustrated. It also didn't help that my sister is NOT an experienced sewer at all, so on top of trying to figure this craft out, I had to teach her how to sew.
I decided to use the tutorial that had a liner in it because I thought it looked better. And who doesn't like a purse that has an awesome liner?
Here is the link to the tutorial I used: DIY Fold Over Clutch
Her directions were pretty good, but there were some parts that you had to figure out.
Here are some tips that I came across that she didn't mention:
1) Get a leather needle for your sewing machine AND for hand sewing.
2) Make sure you know the basics of using a sewing machine otherwise it will be a disaster.
3) Get AT LEAST 1/2 yard of fabric. (I got a full yard just in case. The "leather" I bought was for upholstery. It was labeled at vinyl.

I hope that you guys have fun making this!!! I can't say that the whole time was fun, but it was exciting to see how it turned out. I will be making the same one my sister made on another day. =o)
