Create the easiest DIY no-sew clutch from a place mat and a thrifted belt @ By Wilma

I love to create easy but beautiful projects. It’s nice to create something that doesn’t cost a lot of time or money but does look beautiful. This clutch is an example of such a project. It’s easy, cheap and pretty! It even gives you the chance to upcycle some stuff. I hope you enjoy making and wearing this clutch!

Learn how to make the easiest no-sew clutch including step by step pictures after the jump. . .

What you need for the easiest now-sew clutch

– Craft glue (I recommend Aleene’s 8 oz. Original Tacky Glue)
– Thrifted leather belt
– Dollar store place mat
– Scissors
– Clothespins

Create the easiest DIY no-sew clutch from a place mat and a thrifted belt @ By Wilma

How to create the easiest no-sew clutch 

1. Find a belt and a place mat that go well together.
2. Fold the place mat while leaving about 4 inch on top to fold over the opening of your clutch. Glue the sides and use clothespins to keep material in place while it’s drying. Remove the clothespins when the glue is dry.
3. Fold the belt around the clutch and decide on the length of the belt. Cut off the leather. Now decide where the holes should go. I made two holes. One for an almost empty bag and one for when it’s a little bit more filled.
4. Use your Cropodile  to punch to holes in the leather belt.
5. Glue down the belt on your bag. You only need to glue down the part of the belt that’s on the back of your clutch. Use something heavy to press the glued surfaces down.
6. Close your belt and your beautiful and easy no-sew clutch is ready! XO Wilma

    Hey just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The words in your content seem to be running off the screen in Opera.
    I’m not sure if this is a formatting issue or something to do with web browser compatibility but I thought I’d post to
    let you know. The design look great though! Hope you get the problem resolved soon.
    Many thanks

    A good planning, appropriate preventive measures, and
    careful precautions can substantially reduce the risk of illnesses, diseases and accidents, and others untoward incidents.
    However, due to the increased usage of glucose meters, many pharmacies
    should now be able to bill for free glucometers once requested
    by the diabetic. Purchase the correct life insurance policy the first
    time around.
