Lace and sheers are so in this season.. I have been buying anything that has lace on it. I have lace T shirts, lace dresses and even shoes with lace. I spotted some cool looking lace bags while window shopping and I needed to have one right away..
I thought of buying but then I stumbled upon this lovely DIY to make a lace envelope clutch and I remembered that I have an old dress (from my childhood) lying in my closet and it is made of similar lace fabric... About old things.. I do have very old belongling still in good condition, because I believe in repairing and not throwing away.

So buying went out of question and DIY it was.
Here's my DIY
Things you will need.
1. An old clutch
2. Lace fabric to cover up the clutch
3. fabric Glue
Here's my old battered clutch. The texture was gone and the corners were also chipped.
Here's the lace fabric that I cut off from an old dress
Step 1: Remove the metal pieces from the clutch. Mine were fixed with screws from the inside, so it was fairly easy. I used a watchmaker screwdriver to open the screws.
Here's a picture of the clutch with the removed metal ends.
Step 2: Cut the lace fabric in a size enough to cover the clutch. Remember to leave some extra length for folding inside. I wrapped the fabric around the clutch and then cut off the extra fabric.
Step 3: Glue the fabric on the clutch and fold the edges on the fabric inside to get a clean finish
Ste 4: Restore the metal ends and voila!!! You are ready to rock with a brand new purse.
It's time to go ahead and make your own.
