Self-Drafted Clutch DIY

Happy Valentine’s week friends. Hope you are having a good week so far, filled with love and smiles. My weekend was filled with much sewing and I made a self drafted pattern to share today YAY! I love knowing that I made something from scratch, no matter how simple. I also find it pretty quick to complete self-drafted patterns and usually do one after a long day of commercial pattern sewing, especially when it did not go “sew” well lol.

I have included a few step by step pics of how i did this but many easy tutorials can be found on YouTube .

I used some remnant fabric I had for the outside of the clutch. It is pretty thick, I think it is upholstery fabric and I used a fun patterned cotton fabric I had on hand for the lining. I used heavy crafting interfacing to add some stabilization to the clutch and made it feel more sturdy.

Outside fabric with interfacing ironed on.
Lining fabric with zipper
I used a metal zipper for the visual beauty, you can use any zipper you have an hand for.


Fresh from the machine

Ready to go

SOOTD: I styled this with a lovely red dress I got for Christmas from Kohl’s and a pair of red pumps from the shoe closet. I love the monochromatic look (all one color), mixing different shades of red adds a little more interest to the look. A pair of tassel earrings tops it off and I am ready to partay! 


Style TipOpt out of a necklace when the dress had a bedazzled neckline or when wearing sequins. Let the dress be the statement piece. 

Hope you enjoyed it as much I did making it. Let me know what you thing, leave a comment, like, follow the blog for more awesome tips and tricks.
