Over Christmas break, I made a clutch out of a pretty placemat for my boyfriend’s sister for Christmas. I love how it came out and I have three more placemats at home that I need to make into clutches for my mom and my sisters! And one for myself!
It started out as a normal-sized rectangular placemat. I just folded it into thirds in a way that I thought looked pretty and then sewed down the sides! It was so easy and I think it came out really cute.
I then added a button to the front and I made an elastic loop (out of a brown hair-tie lol) for the closure.
And lastly I added a little flower that my mom had made a few months ago as a pretty finishing touch. I placed it halfway onto the top flap so that it covered the button/closure part when the bag is closed.
And yes, I was so excited about it that I took all of those pictures in the basement while I was still sitting at the sewing machine.
Also, here’s a picture of one of our kitties at home. He likes boxes:

And this is what shopping with my siblings is like:
Okay, I’m done. Enough randomness haha.
