i've been wanting an envelope clutch for awhile now, but the leather ones that i liked were far too expensive. i found this large suede wrap skirt at a thrift store for $4.99 and thought that it would be a great way to make the purse. i didn't measure, but i think the piece of fabric was about 2.5 feet by 5ish feet. when you unbutton the skirt, the piece of fabric was about double the length than what you see on my sis. the chain is from lowes ($.69 a foot). the purse is fully lined.
hope you like it!
