How to sew a clutch purse without a sewing machine

In this post, I want to show you how you can simply make a clutch base for embroidery or other decoration. Therefore, a master-class will not contain steps embroidery with beads.

We need to work:

1. leather or leatherette – 20 29 (2 album leaf) and another piece of 20 by 10 cm.

2. Monofilament.

3. Beads for skin size 10 – 10 grams, 6 beads size 6.

4. The metal button.

5. Foamiran 1 sheet.


Getting Started! To start cut out two sheets of A5 size, in my case it leatherette (density 14) and rascherchivaem and cut the edges, as in the scheme.


Cut the sheet foamirana size of 18 to 9, and inserted between two sheets of imitation leather, very close to the edge, leaving the edges to 1 cm and glue to the sheet that will have you on the inside of the clutch.


Now sew a button, stepping back from the edge of 2 cm.


When the button is sewn, sewn beading along the edge.

Are stitched in 3 layers, not doshivaem before the end of 1 cm. It is we still need.


That is what we must have.Now bend marginalia half.


And sews beads without bottom fold, as in the photo.


Now bend our clutch at the end of the edges, looking to all the layers are equal to each other, and were at the same level. Since we have in piercing pierce all layers.


Take the larger beads and sewn №6 in the same way.


Code we flashed left us centimeter, we sew the second side of marginalia.


We do the same thing on the other side.


That this form, we should get.


Sew on buttons mate.


Cut off another piece of foamirana, smear glue and inserted between two layers on the rear wall of the clutch, and tightly presses. Now, our clutch keeps its shape.

Then we decorate handbag, because I do beadwork and then decorated it accordingly. Edge sewn in the last turn (the same way), and all of our belongings, and the seams of the embroidery disappear in between the layers. Edge can be given any shape, or leave smooth, like me, it all depends on your imagination.
