Easy Leather Clutch

Happy Thursday Everyone. 
I hope all of you have had a positive and  successful week.  I wanted to share with all of you what we are going to do in class tomorrow. An easy Leather clutch or phone case. The point of this project  is that Design and Fashion is not only clothes but accessories as well. I am giving them the basic design ,but I want them to embellish it, creating their own design. I love working with leather it is such a great medium. So for all of you at home here is the plan.

Things You Need

1. Cut your leather. I used a 8 by 11 piece of card stock as a template.
2.  Fold up the bottom,  tape the two pieces together holding it into place, while you punch holes in it. I punched about 9 holes on each side.
3.Take your leather cording and lace it through the holes. Tie a knot at both ends.
4. Put in your magnetic snaps. using the video instructions HERE.
5. Make an embellishment to cover the snap.

6.Cut three pieces of leather and braid them to make the strap. Tie a knot at both ends, then attach  the braid using the hole punch and leather cord.

and that is it.
I hope all is well with everyone.
One more week of Fashion class and I will be back to my normal blogging schedule, lots of clothes posts.
I really miss doing them.
Friday is here.
I cannot wait to show you what class did this week.
