To me, this orange clutch looks like a sleek summer accessory that Hermes would come up with - especially if I made the hand strap to look like a giant "H." Look at this handsome Hermes bag that my bag would compliment nicely.
I continued my marine vinyl bender by sewing this simple, but sleek, orange iPad-friendly clutch. I can't believe how sleek and expensive it looks - straight seams and minimal stitching is the key.
Yesterday I showed you my fold-over clutch with contrasting top zipper (love them!) but do you remember the royal blue clutch that started it all last year? I carry it all the time and it still looks as good as the day I made it. Marine vinyl is a fabulous material to work with!
I had some orange material left over, so I made myself a little case that I can clip to my belt loop when I just want to run to the grocery store. It holds my iPhone and a Renee's seed packet case that I use to hold my ID, Visa and $20.
I know, I say seed packet case as if that is a known commodity, right? It is just a little something that makes sense to me. Seed packets are beautiful, why wouldn't you upcycle them into something for your purse? I cover them in plastic tape and then sew on vinyl flaps that I made and add a closure with adhesive velcro. I used to see these in art shows and people loved them. Makes sense to me!
