Vintage DIY

Dear sewing lovers,

As you might know our studio has started monthly themed sewing workshops. You learn how to sew very chic items for less than $50 and in less than 2 hrs. So in our search for March sewing projects we may have found it! March will most likely be VINTAGE DIY. What the heck is it? You go to a thrift or vintage store or even your mothers or...even your fathers closet and take something with a beautiful print. You can tell your mom that print worked in the 70's for a skirt but its time to up-cycle to a wearable item for today!

We took a scarf bought at Value Village over a year ago for $3. Its a beautiful print, so kinda hesitant to cut it up. BUT were all about experimenting so we cut it up to make a fabric clutch. Its fully lined with a basic black cotton fabric and the closure is just leather strips cut from a leather pelt found at Dressew (Bought during 50% off sale!! wooot). Just wrap the straps around the clutch and tie to close.

Our Vintage DIY clutch fits your iPhone, makeup, cards, money and even a slim epi leather LV wallet. Mind you our necks are now cold with no scarf...but that wont stop us from making a scarf another day!

Want to learn how to make a Vintage DIY Clutch, let us know and we will add it to the March sewing workshop line up.

DIY cause we can,
She at SWFDS
