DIY: Oversized Fringe Clutch

I discovered my obsession with oversized clutches searching through blogs and tumblr. I found so many different prints, colors, and textures but the only problem kept running into were the prices. My current budget has no room for a 150 dollar clutch. But after aimlessly searching through blogs I came stumbled across ChelleBellz where I found this amazing clutch

$40 dollars is a steal!.. But I again my budget is on an extreme diet so I decided to make my own clutch.
I started to get the materials for the clutch pictured above until I realized I had enough to fabric make a fringe bag that I've been trying to make for a while now. 


MATERIALS I USED
1yd Interface : Scissors : Funky Lining : 2yds Suede Fabric : Metal Clasp: Iron
I started by making the fringe on the clutch from the suede fabric
I cut about 20 strips of fringe


After fusing the interface onto the suede with the iron I sewed the lining and suede together. 
Next, I sewed the folded material in half with the right sides together, matching the selvage edges. 

HERE'S THE HARD PART...
I then sewed the strips of fringe onto the the bag ... BY HAND!
After than painstaking task was completed I inserted the metal clasp on to the inside of the bag



The total hours I spent making the bag was about 8 hours definitely well worth the time spent. ..& the total cost for the materials came out to about 10 bucks!
Here's the bag completed! :)

  1. This clutch is amazing... I love the fringe you sewed on the purse. It sure is over-sized but a great size! I made an over-sized clutch out of an old leather coat.
