In the Clutch: How to Sew a Canvas Print Clutch Using your Own Artwork

Turn your artwork into a DIY canvas clutch with this easy to follow tutorial

Every year, I get further and further behind on DIY holiday gifts and decor ideas I hope to make. So, this year I am vowing to change that and get started early. Which means, it’s full speed ahead to Christmas town now that it’s November. Don’t worry, I have some Thanksgiving content planned too.

So, I partnered with FedEx Office to create a completely customizable holiday gift idea, perfect for family and friends, just in case you’re planning your DIY gift list early this year. The gift is this DIY canvas clutch, made from your own artwork / design in the colors and patterns your friends will love.

The full sewing tutorial (and video!!) for this DIY clutch idea is over on the FedEx Office Out of Office blog, but I couldn’t resist sharing a few photos here too. If you do decide to make your own canvas clutch, be sure to visit for 50% off canvas prints now through November 30th.

This was such a fun project to put together. I hope you like it as much as I do.

That clutch looks amazing! As a lover of art, I love having stuff that are artistic and decorative. Really nice DIY too, I’m thinking of doing this to give out as a gift. I mean I love sewing and making personalized stuff. 🙂

Thanks Kimberly. I definitely think you could hand stitch it, but it would take a lot longer to do it that way. Might be a good alternative if you don’t have a sewing machine though.


Love this! It would make a great change purse. Do you think you can hand-stitch it or do you really need a sewing machine?


Thanks Michelle!


This is such a cool idea, I love it! It’s a perfect gift!
