Hey there! Hope you’re feeling energized after a few days off for Thanksgiving….We ended up putting our tree up over the break (along with a whole lot of pumpkin pie) and it’s really feeling like the holidays around here now. What about at your house?
With it being officially December (that was quick, huh?), I’m thinking about gifts for friends and family because the next three weeks are going to fly by. Naturally, I have some DIY options up my sleeve and I’ll be sharing some of those with you in the coming weeks, starting today, with this stitched clutch DIY that I recently created for iVillage.
I teamed up with them to create a handful of DIY projects for their 30 Days of HoliDIY (a new holiday DIY everyday for 30 days). So I’ll be sharing a sneak peek for all of my iVillage projects as they are released. You can view the entire calendar here for a list of all 30 DIYs.
Anyway, back to today’s DIY…Inspired by a popular shoe makeover I did way back when, I made this stitched clutch from an inexpensive, plain zipper pouch for less than $15 total. It would make a great (semi) handmade gift for a friend and it’s really easy to customize to even your pickiest friend’s liking.
What do you think? Do you have any friends who could use one of these little stitched clutches?
