- Pre-baby wardrobe
- An old dusty purse
- A round 1 euro placemat!
- Scraps of fabric, ribbon or any other embellishments.
I used a rich grey fabric from an old shirt my mother had stitched for me. A thin layer of adhesive spray on the purse and I simply wrapped the fabric on the purse.
For the corners I tucked them in and used hot glue to secure them.
To prepare the 'flap' of the clutch..I'm a lil embarrassed to reveal but while decoding the Chinyere bag.. first thing that came into my mind was the round placemat I had on my table for everyday use...and guess what it worked just fine. I trimmed it to size, and covered it with fabric.
To fill it up I started hot gluing the trims and embroideries that I plucked from my stash.
More glue to attach the flap on the back side of the purse..and I was done.
I added more color and a personal vibe to my inspiration.
There, I made a Tweed Clutch Bag worth 50 Dollars in store. Mine cost next to nothing..not bad.
