DIY Canvas Fold Over Clutch.

I have finally made the clutch I have been wanting since I first saw it on Clare Vivier's  Blog.
 I am seriously in love with this woman. I love how simple her designs are, yet so very classy.
 I made this one out of Canvas, because I have lots of it, it is thick
 and it can be easily painted or dyed. 
 You too, can make one of these fold over clutches. 

Things You Need

  1. Thick Canvas cut 23 inches by 10 inches
  2. Scissors
  3. 12 inch Zipper
  4. Iron
  5. Sewing machine
  6. Straight pins

 fold your canvas in half bring the two ends together 
fold down the edges and iron flat.
 Lay your zipper face down on the two folded pieces, pin and  sew.
Note: ( I am not an expert seamstress.  I just do super, basic sewing.)
 unzip the zipper*
 ~if you don't unzip the zipper then you will not be able to turn the bag right side out~

sew up the sides of the bag

turn the bag right side out,
and decorate however you want, 
or leave it plain.

I put a neon green ring, with a orange hand made tassel on mine for now.
I am still trying to decide how I want to design it.
 I really like the way it looks with just the white and black.
Neon Zippers are going on the next ones.:)
Have a spectacular Wednesday.
Lots of <3,


  1. Adorei sua clutch, vou fazer uma para mim. Obrigada por ensinar como fazer.

  2. Ok, I love this clutch! You make it sound so easy, like even I could do it. I have always wanted to make a clutch, I think I'll try. You're AMAZING! Hope all is well sweet friend! Hugs to you!

  3. Looks awesome, I love it! I'm going to make this one! I love it! I don't have any zippers handy. Not sure what to do about that, besides not making it till I go to town and get a zipper. Maybe snaps? button? hummm

    1. Kasey, maybe snaps would look good. if you make one send me a picture.
      Have a great day.
