leather + canvas foldover clutch

Since I'll be traveling a lot this fall (Salt Lake City, Austin, New York and DC are on the list!),  I wanted to make myself a cute clutch for nights out on the town. Inspired by the tutorials I've seen floating around blogs, I decided to make myself a foldover clutch with a metal zipper using a combination of these two tutorials.

Thanks to an afternoon sewing session with a friend, I managed to start and finish the clutch in a day. I used black and white fabric from Ikea (look familiar?) and leather from another friend for the outside of the clutch.

And for the inside, I used a print from Erin McMorris's Summersault line, which I picked up from Sew Mama Sew! last year.

For someone with no zipper experience, this was an easy project with super polished results. I can't wait to use it during my travels!

P.S. We're almost halfway to our fundraising goal for the Walk to End Alzheimer's in October, and I'm sending handmade cross-stitch buttons to everyone that donates! Details here.
