All right, enough with the suspense! Here it is! This is the DIY clutch that I have hinting about in the previous 2 posts. I'm so happy that I finally completed this project, after planning it for a year. Maybe I am exaggerating, but I got the idea of making a snakeskin clutch a year ago. That was when I bought the pink snakeskin skirt in a thrift shop for just $4. This year, I finally got down to finalising the design that I want for the clutch and putting my plan into action.
|Flaw: Imperfect corner|
|Flaw: Imperfect closure at the corner|
I have to say that I am a little disappointed in the end-product. Firstly, the clutch is smaller than what I initially wanted because I realised that the skirt is not as big as I originally thought. Secondly, there are some flaws here and there due to my amateur sewing skills. Moral of the story: DRAW A CUTTING DRAFT NEXT TIME.
Nevertheless, I am still proud of it (am I contradicting myself?) because it is, after all, my baby. :)
I planned on writing a tutorial but then the sewing process simply got really complicated as I tried to figure out a way to cut the pieces and sew them properly together. So, there's no real tutorial but I took many pictures of the process. Hopefully the pictures will be able to give you an idea of what to do/what I did! :)

|Before: A large skirt!|
|LOVE THE TEXTURE|
|Used a Japanese magazine as measurement for the size of the clutch|
|Cut out the pieces for the clutch (including a lining!)|

|After a bit of struggle......... tadaaa!|
|Added the magnetic clasp and then moved on to adding the studs|
|Created holes with my seam ripper to insert the studs|
So.... that's all I have to say for now. What do you think of the clutch? :D
Awesome DIY!!! I hardly noticed the corners!! I've never attempted a magnetic closure!! Good job you!! Xx
