3 Mixed Print

Mixed PrintFor this particular envelope clutch DIY, a bit of sewing is required. This is very easy, though, because you will basically be sewing only two rectangular bag pieces (main fabric in mixed print and lining). You then use it like an envelope clutch with the upper section as flap.

4 Slanting Zips

Slanting ZipsLooks complicated but this is actually pretty simple to make. You will need leather and zippers for this sewing project. You don't have to worry about constructing a lining because the leather will be sturdy enough and will not have raw edges.

5 Neon Envelope

The neon section is achieved with a bit of spray painting. Other things you will need for this project include a screw back button, thread, sewing machine, and an X-Acto knife.

6 Clear Envelope

Clear EnvelopeTo make a DIY envelope clutch, you can go the recycling route. The basic materials used for this particular clutch are a clear folio (you can get them at any school supply store), leather, scissors, and hot glue.

7 Simple Leather

8 Plastic and Leather

For this DIY, you will be needing clear plastic, leather, button studs, and a sewing machine. Using an envelope as guide, you will cut the clear plastic and leather. Sew the leather and plastic together, with buttons attached to the flaps, and then attach two more stud buttons to the bottom of your clutch.

9 Place Mat
