And because I like keeping my word, here is the step-by-step… 
C’mon, its Saturday, you have no school, no work, you probably have a party later today, but you are free right now, so get the fabric, scissors, pins and let the party begin!, then, you take your new clutch to tonight’s party? How does that sound? :P



Y como soy una mujer de palabra, aquí esta el como hacer la bolsa, paso a paso … Es Sábado, no tienes clases, no tienes que ir a trabajar, ¡No hay excusas! … Ve por la tela, tijeras, alfileres y que empiece la fiesta :P.

  1. Thanks for sharing this, I am always on the look out for something different to share with people as well.
    So guys please Please join my BBM channel. PinC001A99BE, its called DIY business Ideas.

  2. Thanks so much for this tutorial! I know its old but still.
    I knew making one of these bags had to be easy. I have been salivating over the American Apparel carry all pouch for a while now, but there was no way I was paying almost 70 bucks for a big piece of leather with a zipper. Though they did have some lovely pastel shades.. I was torn between lavender, powder blue, bubblegum, and iridescent silver.
    I will be scouting out the materiel to make this as soon as I can get to town!
    LOL I am going to make an absolutely HUGE clutch.
    Maybe I’m an idiot, but I don’t understand how your zipper was the perfect length for the clutch you made. Oh well, I’ll have to ask my mother, as she can actually operate a sewing machine, unlike me :/

  3. This color is so cool. I have seen DIY Clutches popping up all over the place. You all should check out my instagram @designsbysmiley to see my creations..

  4. Hey Andy you’ve just solved my problem!! This morning I bought a pair of green sandals and I was looking for a green handbag like this one, but now I will do it by myself. Thank you

  9. This is so awesome! It looks really simple, I'm very tempted to try it but my sewing machine doesn't work. :( Sob! Maybe I'll try to hand-sew it? X

  10. Omg. This tutorial just saved me so much money. I've been wanting one of these pouches but just not willing to shell out the cash. Yours is so cute! Thank you!

  11. Hi there, this is a great bag!just wondering if you have left out a step? from the part stitch on side of bag to the sew zipper it doesnt seem to make sense.Do you mean stitch sides or zipper, as the picture below looks like the zipper has a different position to top images.thanks tho!i love the yellow

  16. I have made one now :) it wasn't so hard :D Really happy with it. Used some old tests from a leathersofa and an old zipper from my mums sewingkit and voila :) You are so inspiring!

  17. The only bad part is I don't have a sewing machine :P I really want to get one at some point though, but also my hand stitching is pretty bad. : /

  18. I love this! I was actually going to try making the clutch as well, when I saw them show up on AA and in the hands of fashionistas! Where did you find such awesome leather?

  19. this is such a good idea. when i first saw that blue Celine bag i did an entire post on it. and then i saw them at american apparl, but they didnt have the color i wanted. and then came up with this. sooo smart. u have no idea how excited i am. thank you so much!!! how much was the leather?

  20. Beautiful! American Apparel's got nothing on you!! Cool step by step pics, I don't have a sewing machine…but maybe I can bribe a friend to let me use theirs…hmmm!xo EmilyBELLISHMENT

  30. Sadly colored leather fabric is nowhere to be found in Malaysia. Seriously, you'd be in tears to know the minimal amount of fabric they supply here.It's a good tutorial tho. Good job, Andy <3

  31. Great idea and great DIY!only thing, I guess you missed the step where you sew the sides of the clutch?But anyway, Hands up for not being scared to work with leather))

  32. I've been searching for a place to buy leather for ages… can u buy it in regular stores in amsterdam? or did you buy it online? great DIY ;-)

  33. Awesome! I think I'm going to try this with some blue, as I decided that will be my colour this summer ;)(and maybe some orange..)-X-

  34. Hummm it looks simple. Put I don't have a soing machine at the moment. I have to wait till I go back to Portugal (in September) in order to do that :P

  35. precioso, muy sencillo parece salvo por el tema de la maquina de coser pero se lo dare a mi madre para que me lo cosa ella. Te ha quedado genial.Gracias,caprichos de ana

  36. I rush to the shop for material and I'll do probably three colors.Love this idea because I can't find clutch like this in stores!

  37. This is AMAZING! Thank you soo much for sharing. It really makes your blog even more special than what it already is. I hope you'll post more DIY in the future (like one to make long skirts would be cool). Thank you Andy! You're the most creative fashion blogger :)-The Trendy Fashionista
