new handbags are fun, especially if you make it. of course! i love jessica’s placemat clutch tutorial over at happy together. go check it out!! here’s one i made!
lovely vinyl placemat that only cost me $1 for 2 of them!
did some pinning…
did some measuring (i left 2 inches at the bottom)..some sewing…some turning inside out.
some cutting. i drew it out on the placemat and then cut one side.
then i just traced the first cut handle onto the other and cut that. super easy. :)
some sewing…you can’t see it but i used a bright blue stitching.
going for the “worn” look. ha.
glued some felt over some cardboard and glue it to the bottom. i would have used plastic canvas but i couldn’t find mine:( cardboard=next best thing.
some hand stitching…since i’m not eating sweets at the moment…this was hard. ahh a cupcake.
**what’s in my bag…
some good essentials. i’m thinking i want to add a pocket or two inside the bag. oooo fun!
oooh and i just found my new earrings i bought with my friend madison. must put on now. :) have a great day everyone!!! what’s in your bag????
peace and love
