How to make a leather tassel clutch with embellishment
I just love this new member of my DIY family. The color is perfect for the Autumn and the quality of the leather is amazing. Can you believe I bought this leather piece on a flea market for only 1€($2)? The cute bug-brooch was also a flea market bargain. So altogether my DIY clutch cost less than 10€($13). I think that is a great deal for a cute handmade clutch.

If you are looking for some leather pieces for this tutorial you can find great deals on your E-bay or Etsy.com. But of course you can use any thick material like felt or PVC sheets instead of leather. Make sure to use leather needle for your sewing machine. If you don't have a sewing machine you can use a strong glue or glue gun to close the seams. Enjoy and be creative!
