Clutch Bag

Project Description

What are you most proud of? I think that it the metal closure is nice, even if the bag as a whole is not so perfect! What advice would you give someone starting this project? I probably didn't pay so much attention to glueing, and then, due to this, my seams are not perfect.... But now I think I can try to make another one just a bit more carefully!

What you will need

  • Patent leather with ribbon drawings engraved on it. Imitation of leather used inside for the lining
  • with a small zippered pocket.

Q&A with simona.bu73

Don Morin asked:
Excellent job.. You have used some techniques that I haven't shown you yet you have succeeded in constructing a well designed handbag. You have truly made it your own. Bravo!
simona.bu73 answered:
Oh!!!!! Thank you! I'm waiting eagerly for your next project-lesson.... ! I'm so curious to learn some more techniques!
Keva1 asked:
Love the bag. How did you make it sturdy?
simona.bu73 answered:
Thanks! Well, I used bontex which is something like cardboard, but it keeps always the same shape and turned the leather around it. Bontex comes in different weights and thicknesses.
