Pinterest Challenge: Little Clutch

I had a very hard time deciding exactly what I wanted to do for this season’s pinterest challenge, hosted by Young House Love, Bower Power, Hi Sugarplum, and The Great Indoors


I really wanted to make it a “legit” project where it was something I already pinned, something that I’ve been wanting to do for awhile, and try to make it somewhat cost free to nothing.  So as I was searching my archives I found this!


Nothing fancy…and I just labeled it with “clutch.”  Sure…I can sew a clutch right?  So I wandered over to my sewing supplies, grabbed some scraps and a zipper I happened to have (I don’t know why I had it…I’m sure I wanted to do something with it) and I got down to work.  I apologize for my lack of in process pictures…as I really didn’t know what I was doing!!  Haha!  It was a lot of trial and error and I am an expert seam ripper now.  But…the finished product is this!


EEK!  I love it!  and I can’t believe I did it!  I know it does not look like the Pinterest picture…but that was just my PIN-spiration…if you will.  I wasn’t even sure if I’d be able to make a bag period, let alone one with a flap and cool tassle thing…so this is what it is.  But check this….I even made it lined!!  I feel so fancy!




It’s perfect for all my cosmetic needs, so easy to throw in my purse, and washable!  I started putting my phone and gloss and keys in here so it’s easy to transfer from purse to purse and easy to find in those giant Mama totes I carry around.  I love it so much….I made another one!!!


HAHA!  The best part is these are small enough to make with leftover material from other projects!  Yay!  And I’ve decided that I’m going to sell these on my Etsy shop since I’m so proud to have done this ALL by myself!  My sister already requested one!  Yay!  I can’t wait to make more!  Thank you, Pinterest challenge and ladies who created it, for making me get off my butt and attempting something that I love to make now!


  1. Super cute!! That fabric is amazing!! Looks like a nice little size that would be very handy!

  2. That is really cute! I've been wanting to make one of these for a long time, but never got around to it. BTW - Your layout is adorable! :)

  3. @ everyone - Thank you! It has come in quite handy...and it's easy NOW! :) Not so much when I was doing it the first time!

    @ Melanie - Thank you! We worked really hard on designing it! The girl who made sense of all our ideas together was amazing. We can definitely pass her information along if you would like!

  4. These are so so cute!!! Thanks for linking them up!

    ps-- your thumbnail isn't showing up on my link, you might want to redo it! I'd hate for people to miss out on this! :)

  5. Great job on your project! I love them. Maybe this will finally give me the kick in the bum I need to attempt a lined bag. I've been dying for a long, slender makeup bag that will fit my Urban Decay Naked2 palette!

  6. Love it! I made a Kindle case very similar to this. I was previously afraid of zippers. Now I can't be stopped!

  7. This is gorgeous. I love the fabrics you used :)

  8. So cute! Wonderful job!


We love to hear your thoughts, good bad or random! We love comments of all kinds!
