I haven’t done one of these in a while, but I was so inspired by all of the oversized clutches I’ve seen lately that I was determined to take 10 minutes and make one. I have actually had the idea for a clutch in mind for quite a while but I was thinking more along the lines of a regular sized clutch. Here’s some visual stimulation for you:
Need I say more? Not really, so I’ll just show you what I came up with.
2′ X 2′ square pillow cover
1 wire hanger
untwist the neck of the hanger and pull it open so form the frame of the clutch
fold in approximately 1 1/2 inches of the side of the pillow case that is to become the bottom of the clutch. This isn’t a necessary step, but I wanted my clutch more on the rectangular side.
Insert the wire hanger into the open pocket of the pillow case cover and bend it to create the frame you desire (rectangular or square).
Tuck the hanger wires into the top part of the pillow case pocket so that they wont scratch anything. Then flip the top portion of the pillowcase over and you’ve got a clutch.
Easy, right? I made it while I was watching the kids color and read books and really it only took about 10 minutes including the time it took for me to take the step by step pictures.
Oh and I’d be so rude not to remind you to enter the shopping spree giveaway!
