Project Re-Style #23 Blue and Teal Placemat Clutch

Week 23 of my Project Re-Style challenge. 
Welcome everyone. !
 I am So happy you are here.  If you are just joining me, this is my Project Re-Style day. Not sure what that is? Well, all the details will be at the end of this post. In short, I have challenged myself to make one Re-Style project a week for one year. Re-Styling something out of my closet or something that I found and making it into something completely different.
This week, I have veered away from clothes and gone back  to accessories, a purse to be exact.  This Clutch Purse is similar to  another clutch purse I did. HERE and HERE The only difference is, this one is made out of 2 placemats, instead of just one.
These  Placemats only cost 2 dollars a piece.

I was going to use them on our table for summer, but my creative side has won out, once again. I am happy to report that I did buy 2 more placemats to replace the ones I swiped. 

Things You Need
1. Two round placemats. I found mine for $2.00 at Wal-mart.
2. Sewing machine
3. Hot glue gun
4. Magnetic clasp

For the flower
5. Leather scraps 
6. Scissors
7.  Pin or hair clip( I used a hair clip)
8. Hot glue gun

1. Lay your two place mats down, over lapping each other.
2. Stitch the two placemats together as shown above.

 3. Fold the placemats  in half and stitch the sides.

4. Fold the tops over, measure  where you want the the clasp.
 Instructions Here for the clasp.
5.  Place some hot glue on the clap, then  glue the flap over.

 Secret pocket for your phone.

I  just love the flower.

  9. Hi Anne,
    I finally posted my placemat clutch DIY. Have a link to this.
    Love all your latest DIYs.

  10. This will be the perfect accessory for a new dress of mine (hot date night with hot husband!). Where do I find the placemats? I've been searching around and I can't justify $15 ea. Thanks for the great idea.

    1. Hey Shai, I found mine at Wal-mart for about $2.00 a piece.. but that was a year ago. good luck, I found this on line. http://www.walmart.com/search/search-ng.do?search_query=round+placemats
      Thank you,

  11. Can you tell me, please, what these placemats are made of? I bought some at Walmart that look like these, but they're plastic, which I doubt would be appropriate for this project.

    1. Hey Bev, These place mats I used are made of straw or raffia. not plastic I bought them about a year ago.

  12. Amei a ideia, as cores o efeito final. Parabéns!
