African print clutch purse

With no prior knowledge of how to make a clutch purse, I decided to try to make my very first diy clutch purse. It really isn't to fancy and it didn't take much time at all (about 20-25 mins). That's pretty fast for lil ol' slow me, lol.

You'll need:
Glue gun + glue sticks
Ruler
Scissors
Felts ( 4 felts ...they sell for 39cents at joann fabrics)
iron
material
sewing machine (or need and thread, if machine unavailable)
Velcro

First, fold the material in two

Join 2 felt pieces together and place it on top of the maeterial to get a general idea of the desired shape

Join the remaining 2 felts together and place it on top of the material, just above the first felt.
Next trace out a line, for cutting

Trace out  an extra line just above the felts.

Now cut the material, using the traced line as an outline


Remove the felt and place it inside the material

Fold the Material, using the felt as a guideline

Iron each folded part and pin sides.

Sew sides together, then turn it inside out and iron to flatten it out
It should look exactly like this.
Now, use a glue gun to glue the Velcro to the bag (serves as a lock for the bag) 
Glue any other opening or raw edges.

And Voila, my very own diy African Print Clutch Bag

Many οnlіnе tattoo galleries keep cоmpetіtions foг the
best tattoo ideaѕ. Tribаl Shapеs has

Аpart frοm thiѕ, it is essentіal to look
for a professional atmοsphere in the shop.
