Is there anything better than clutches for summer time? I find these small bags really cool and practical, for the city or on the beach. And, you know what? It also upcycling time! Those who are following me should know that I love upcycling things from home decor to my closet…

Yesterday’s cushion cover is now a summer clutch.

-thread, needles, scissors and pencil.

Step 1. Place the plastic sheet in the middle of the cushion cover and delimit the width size with needles.

Then return the material on it-self and draw, thanks to the needles, the border lines with the pencil.

Fold the plastic sheet in 2 in order to define the high of the clutch.

Draw the line and verify the measurements with a tape measure.

Place the zip in the middle, because we need it to close up the bag! and fix each side with needles.
