DIY ethnic wrap clutch

5.13.2011
(outfit: madewell cardigan/jeans/bracelets, uniqlo button up, aa v neck, diy braclet)

I’m going on a clutch frenzy friends!! I saw this beautiful pencil case by The Good Flock at the most awesome Levi’s store ever (I must elaborate in a future post) and thought it would be an amazing clutch, once resized.

I was instantly on the hunt for the perfect fabric. This past weekend, I went to the Pasadena Rose Bowl flea market and found a saddle blanket with the color combination I had originally envisioned. I love that it can spruce up any outfit with ease… I would definitely wear it with a white top, jeans, and boots. Enjoy!!

First of all, this is brilliant. Second, what, praytell, is this Fraycheck? Sounds like something my non-sewing arse needs to learn more about...
