I saw a similar clutch at a designer store while I was visiting Seattle a few weeks ago. I did not like the high end price so I thought of a way to make my own.
I had this hide of turquoise leather from a project last year & cut on the grain. I have a Caboodle full of beads & chose these ones.
I used my Skull clutch that I made last year as a template & made it basically the same way except I made this one with a flap.
I cut the leather a little thick so I could thread on the beads & tied knots to the ends.
I did break 2 leather needles.....my other 1960's Singer sewing machine had just called it quits so I used my newer one.
Love my new true blue clutch!
Sew you later!
