Its been a while since I last posted something, alot has happened and life got a bit hectic. But I have been able to make a few things recently and one of them is this clutch. When I first saw a photo of them I knew I needed one.... I just dont have the do$h for an authentic one, soooo...... I made one! :-D

I started with a cheap sunglasses case, a few rings and my father kindly flattened some wire for me. (Dont you just love 'em?!)

Next was to find out how I was going to make the holes, I thought "just use an exact-o knife" but we soon found out that we were not working with plastic! Its alloy or something similar. So I got to play with the Dremel ^.^   (I think I get a little bit too much fun out of power tools :-D  )

Make sure the fixtures fit

Then simply put the rings in place and fold the fixtures to hold.

Push the inner plastic cover back and its all hidden!

And there we have it!

I love it and all the rings still fit properly, I just cant wear it when my fingers decide to swell, its kinda funny to try and get your money out when one of your fingers is stuck! ;-)   I'm also very glad to see that my camera can fit in there too. :-)

Hope you like, C&C welcome.

Now I know what to do with my sunglasses case...it is too big to carry around in my purse!  Thanks for posting!  Oh yeah, I love the rings you chose!!!

If you can't do it with duck tape...it can't be done!
