DIY & Design: Target Placemat Clutch

Jul 18, 2012

I have been wanting to make a placemat clutch for awhile now, but I couldn't find a pattern that I liked.
I was in Target last night (buying exciting diapers) when a pretty yellow placemat caught my eye.
Yessssssss. I could finally make it.

So, yeh.
Here it goes!

the supplies:

1 vinyl placemat + 1 patterned cotton placemat (found at Target)
glue gun or tacky craft glue
button or snap
hemp chord
(all can be found at Hobby Lobby)

the steps

1. glue the placemats together (leaving some overlapping on one end)
2. sew button on
3. sew hemp chord on in a loop
4. sew sides
5. take pictures with it b/c it's so cool


This clutch will carry me over into the Fall too with its mustard-y yellow & brown colors :).

Let me know if you try this one out b/c I'd love to see it in different patterns!
