The $1 Clutch (Miss September)

September 30, 2013

Back when I went to Dirt Cheap with my BFF’s, I bought a placemat.

As in singular.

1 brown placemat.


My BFF’s questioned my craftiness and wondered what I could possibly do with just 1 placemat.

Friends, this is what I did:


There’s really not that much explaining to do here.
I made a clutch with a placemat.
I have a $1.25 brown clutch.

I folded the placemat, pinned it and sewed the sides with brown thread.

I’m slightly thrilled and I think it’s funny that I spent more on the Velcro and flower to secure it than the clutch itself.


Tips and Tricks:
Purchase a double-sided placemat.
It would be super cute with a monogram.
Stock pile these suckers and give them as a gift.

What a great idea! I going to be on the lookout for unusual place mats now!
