When I opened the box of Styled by Tori Spelling goodies a few weeks ago and spotted the shorter necklace bottoms, all that I could think was *clutch.* Seriously. My issue was that there were so many shorter options for necklace bottoms that I would use as a chain on a clutch; I had to come up with a way to interchange them.
Have no worries, ladies. I figured it out *and* I’m sharing the tutorial with you so you can make your own!
2 pieces of fabric cut to 15″ x 19″ * 1 piece of heavyweight interfacing cut to 15″ x 19″
5″ of grosgrain ribbon * coordinating thread * pins
Styled by Tori Spelling necklace bottom
1. Start by making sure that all of the pieces of fabric and interfacing are ironed. It will make a difference! Lay the right sides of the fabric together and layer the interfacing on top.
2. Along one of the 15″ sides, use a straight edge to draw a diagonal line and cut the fabric. This will become the flap of the clutch.
3. Sew a straight stitch around the outside edge of the fabric. Leave a 3″-4″ opening so that you have enough space to turn the fabric right side out.
4. Now turn the fabric right side out and press flat.
5. Fold your sewn fabric up so that you create a pouch 5.5″ high. Make sure that your interior fabric is facing out. Pin it in place.
6. Cut the length of grosgrain ribbon in half and create loops with it. Pin one on each side so that its right near the top of the pouch and with the loop on the inside of the pouch.
7. You should barely be able to see the loop peeking through. See my loop? It’s that itty bitty dot of brown in the middle of the yellow. 🙂
8. Sew a straight stitch up each side of the pouch. I also added a triple stitch over the ribbon to make sure it’s super secure.
Turn your clutch right side out and you’re ready to go! All of the pieces that I used are from the Styled by Tori Spelling Boho line. If you check out my post from yesterday, you can see all of the amazing details about how awesome this new line of jewelry is!
If you want the clutch to be hand held, add a fun brooch to give it a little extra pop. To add one of the necklace bottoms, you need to attach a connector through the ribbon loops. Now you’re set to add any strap that you’d like!
My favorite part of the Styled by Tori Spelling line is that every thing coordinates. You can see in the picture on the right that she’s using a necklace bottom for the strap of the clutch and is wearing a coordinating necklace so everything “goes”! Love!
