Make This No-Sew Clutch Before the Weekend

Accessorizing just keeps getting easier and cheaper. No-sew clutches are the next big thing, so we're going to show you how to make your own in just five easy steps!

What you’ll need:

  • 1/2 yard of suede fabric
  • 1/2 yard of twill fabric
  • Buttons
  • Magnetic closure with prongs
  • Fabric glue
  • Ruler
  • Sharpie
  • Scissors

Step One:

Using a ruler and a Sharpie, trace the clutch outline in your desired dimensions onto the twill. We decided on a six inch x 10 inch rectangle. With scissors, cut out the clutch shape and set aside.

Step Two:

Cut the same shape out of the suede fabric, approximately one inch larger in each direction. With the right side of the fabric facing down, place the twill on the top right side facing you. The twill will be your lining, and the suede will be the outside of your clutch.

Note: Feel free to swap the suede for any other fabric. Vinyl can be used in place of the twill as well.

Step Three:

Fold the suede fabric over the twill and glue down with fabric glue to secure. Make sure no raw edges are exposed. If you’re having a hard time getting the fabric glue to hold, try hot glue instead.

Step Four:

Fold in the sides and bottom of the clutch. With the Sharpie, mark where your magnetic closure should go. Using scissors or an X-Acto knife, cut slits for the prongs. You’ll want to do this for the top flap as well. Fold prongs flat to secure.

Step Five:

After the magnetic closure of the top flap has been secured, glue your choice of button over the exposed prongs.
