Evening Clutch bag for people who write, and can't live without it.
Did you need to meat with somebody and he or she was late? So how make this time better for you and how you could enjoy in the mean time? Be creative and start writing or drawing, what ever you like, it's your time, time to you so enjoy it.

I want to present you nice DIY leather Clutch bag that is fun to have. It's a bag that you will do it yourself, with just a little simple tools like needles, owl and something to cut the leather.

Do you like it? I love it. Inside book is a Midori traveler(tm)s book (20.6 x 10 x 0.8 cm). So, you will be able to replace your well spend time writings; You will have pen pocket, wallet at the back, and phone pocket too and a little cards pocket and even one bigger pocket for all the papers you want to carry with you. All this and it look like super stylish and handmade. Yes, handmade is good and stylish is in, and I love it. So your super cute book will look as a bag, isn(tm)t this fabulous?

I use for my bag two different leathers, because I want to have a little pop of color. And I found inspiration for this design in my shoes Happy Feet so just for that I love it even more.

You could watch a short introduction video too and if you decided to make this gorgeous bag for yourself of for somebody special in your life, then I will give you the pattern and step by step instructions in video format. So we will almost do this project step by step together.

Have a nice day, and enjoy in sewing.
