Currently listening to the sound of moving vehicles as I’m on my way to Uni.


Whoop whoop! It’s the first Friday in 2017 and I’m super excited as I plan to have a fun yet productive weekend in a creative way and I can’t wait for the day to start unwinding. Speaking of creativity, in this post a lot of you asked for more DIY on this blog and as much as I write because it makes me happy, it would be pretty nice to carter to your needs from this blog as well. So no matter how irrelevant I think my DIY is I’d still post it as it might be relevant to someone reading…

I find fringe everything and anything absolutely beautiful, the fluidity has my heart and I’ve been craving a fringe clutch for the longest time. I finally got tired of waiting to thrift one so I decide to make one from materials I already own and I’m here to show you how I got it done. 

Materials Needed : 

* An old clutch (this came in an old tote bag that belongs to my mum)

* Yards of fringe (I got mine from a shirt I thrifted specifically for the fringe. You can find this at textile/tailoring supply stores)

* Pair of scissors 

* Needle & thread (be sure to use the bigger sized needle for easy penetration into the leather)

* Lighter or match box

What To Do : 

* Make sure your clutch is clean.

* Measure how many inches will cover your bag from one end to another.

* With your needle and thread, sew the length of fringe in place.

* You can make several layers depending on how many yards of fringe you have. My quantity was only enough to make two layers.

* After all the cutting and sewing, with the lighter or match stick burn the raw edges of the fringe to prevent it loosening.

* Go forth and slay with your new bag. 

Showed my mum the final result and she wanted her clutch back lol, I was pretty glad my family loved how it turned out and I can’t wait to properly style this purse with an outfit. I really do hope you like this DIY too as it is pretty easy and quick to do.

            Till next time… xoxo
