||How to Make your DIY Envelope Clutch Bag||
(1) Get your Selected Material & Measure it 100 x 34 cm
I’m using faux Suede, but you can pretty much choose any material for this ( make sure it’s thick & will hold shape, leathers, suedes, denim, fur are perfect for this)!!!
(2) Cut out your measured material
(3) Fold your 100 X 34 cm Piece of material in half (leaving you with a length of (2 x50) x 34 cm
& Sew down both sides of the 50 cm sides of the material, making sure you’re sewing the lines inside out!!!
(4) Turn the sewn material, right way up & Fold the bottom corners in & flip your bottom part up!!!
& Repeat with the top part, making sure your get the perfect shape to fit!
(5) Now, we will attach a paper clip or a Pin on the bottom folded in corners to fix the shape of the fold
(6) This is the messy part :p, you will down open the bottom folds and glue the outer corners (as shown in the picture below) I’ve applied the glue with a glove on, as we all know the feeling of having super glue stuck to your hands :(!!!
& then fold back in the envelope shape! & pile a couple of books on top (for a few mins) to set in the glue!
& then your bag is complete!!! 😀
You can fill it up and then fold it inside your envelope!!!
Here is a quick visual guide for all the steps on making your own DIY Envelope Clutch Bag!!!
