Do It Yourself, or DIY, wedding projects allow you to create your own personalized favors and touches that can be applied in any way you can imagine on your special day, for a shower, a party or whenever. All you need are some basic items and a little creativity.
This Do It Yourself Simple Bridal Clutch is a perfect little accessory for your wedding party or perhaps even for you. Throw in some lip gloss, a compact mirror, some mints and you are ready to party. See more crafty do-it-yourself wedding projects here.
1. Piece of Felt
2. Piece of Fabric
3. Needle & Thread
5. Magnetic Snap Closure
1. Cut a 10″x8″ piece of fabric as well as a 10″x8″ piece of felt (for the clutch lining), making the top ends of the fabric and felt bow shaped.
Place the fabric piece and felt piece right sides together, with the outer or printed side of fabric facing the outside. Fold the two pieces up on one end 3/4 of the way, so that the felt is folded upwards and facing out.
Stitch the two pieces together along the top, bottom and sides, making an “envelope”. The clutch is now sewn together but is “inside-out”. Now, flip the clutch right side out.
