i made this simple clutch this afternoon. im thinking of making them for christmas presents as they are quite nice,simple and easy to make and very personal.

onto the pics!


front


back


inside and under flap


more of the inside

its a really great thing to do on a boring sunday between bouts of revision!

tfl

'kay
so now i have had a chance to make a tute
(whilst listening to adam and joe)(www.bbc.co.uk/6music)


so we shall begin!
firstly, this one i a little messy as i have lurgie.this means that this one want make its way into someones xmas gift(the stitching is appauling so i may make it into a new purse(wallet to you.i haate americanisms))

FIRSTLY
make yourself a double sided collage. i used a single magazine page for the 'lining' pic



A QUICK TIP!
if you have words you want to be readable then arrange them with folding in mind
like so


back pic placed right way up

the 'undeflap' pics were placed upside-down in relation to the back pic so they are the right way up when folded

same with the flap pic

SECONDLY
slip that sucka' into a good old plastic wallet!


THIRDLY
fold that baby!



FOURTHLY
get stitchin; scoundrel!

dont forget to trim off the white bit normally used to put in ringbinders!

FIVELY
take some of that sticky velcro(i used the little circles) and stick the fuzzy and hooky bits together so the stick bit is on the two outer sides


SIXENDLY
stick the double velcro circle thing to the flap


SIXANDABIT
close the bag so the other sticky bit sticks down.doing it like this ensures the velcro slines properly!


SEVENALLY
sew down the sides...BUT NOT THE FLAP YOU NODDLE!!


preg_replace('/(.{19})/', '$1 ', 'LASTFINALANDENDINGLY')
admire your loverly new clutch!
and possibly use it
im sure a ribbon strap could be added too!


if i do make it into a wallet is shall edit this tute accordingly.

love you all!!
