Simple leather clutch

Hello friends! Today I want to show you how to make a simple leather envelope clutch.

Making a leather clutch is pretty easy, I only had a small piece of leather I thrifted along with other fabrics for just $3. There is  tons of tutorials on the web and probably you don't need a tutorial to make one. Because is that easy!, but just in case you need one here is how to make it.

Leather or vinyl
Button stud
Rotary cutter and cutting mat
Sewing machine, with needle for leather
matching thread


1. Cut a rectangle mine was 22"long x 10.5" wide (it really depends what size you want it)
2. Make your template
3.Trace template to your leather and cut

4. Fold leather as shown
5. Sew 1/4" seam allowance

6. Cut a small hole on the flap part of your clutch for the button and make a mark, as shown

 7. Make a little hole, place the stud button and you're DONE!

Happy sewing!


  1. I love this project, thanks for posting your instructions! I followed your guidelines and made a purse the other day using vinyl instead of leather (I also increased the size a bit), and it came out well. I still need to find the button stud and then I'll be ready to hit the town.

  2. Awesome clutch! It looks great!
