Denim Clutch Bag

Clutch bag folded size 7.5″

I love clutch bags. A clutch bag is a simple shape which can be any size and any fabric.

I made one this week with black denim that I discharged. The results of the discharge are very interesting. The denim is from an old pair of jeans. The qualities of old denim in particular, appeal to me. The denim is very soft and yet the character is unique. The feel is warm and fun to hold, almost like a security blanket.

A finished folded clutch bag is basically a rectangle. I like to make them with a zipper and without. This one does not have a zipper.

I made another clutch bag with a zipper. The zipper is on the opening. The bag can fold over to either side. Each side has a different look.

I also like to make pouches with a zipper. These are very useful. I use them for jewelry, cosmetics and more.
