Leather Clutch Purse


Use recycled leather from an old jacket or bag to create a stylish little leather clutch purse. Follow this sewing tutorial from Jenya of MyEvaForeva to make this quick and easy clutch.

Leather Clutch Purse


  • Leather
  • Fabric for lining
  • Sewing Machine
  • Thread


You will start with two identical pieces - one leather piece and one lining.

Leather and Lining

Determine where the sides of your clutch will end - mark it with a pen. Sew the pieces together (wrong side out) only around the closure part and the opposite side like it's shown in the photo below.

Mark with Pen

When you turn it the right side out it should look like this.

Right Side

Turn it the wrong side out again and fold it as shown on the photo below. You will need to sew the sides of leather pieces and then the sides of the lining (just one side of the lining actually).

Wrong Side

It should look like this. Sorry for the blurry photo.


Turn it the right side out.

Right Side out

Close the opening in the lining.

When you insert the lining inside the clutch it's going to look like this. Not really complete look, right?

Lining in Clutch

Sew all around along the edge. I secured it on the right side to keep the clutch closed when not in use.

Done. Of course you are welcome to decorate it any way you'd like. I chose it leave it as it is - I like the look of natural leather and the pattern of the lining.
