Make a cute no sew zippered clutch with just a piece of faux leather, a zipper and fabric glue.
I was inspired from a tv show segment to make this quick no sew zippered faux leather clutch. The blogger, Jessie Jane@Lilyshop, used a hot glue gun to make hers' but I decided to use fabric glue which is much stronger and wait a little longer for the glue to dry. Here's how I made mine:

    I laid out the closed zipper and placed the fabric opening edge on top exactly where the two pieces would be glued together. Next I put fabric glue on the edge of the pleather and then added some to the length of the zipper and pressed the two together. I then put weights on the area and allowed the glue to dry for a few hours.

    After the first end dried, I glued down the other end the same as the first.

    After drying, I cut off the ends of the zipper and applied glue to each side of the clutch one at a time, allowing each side to dry separately, and adding weights on top. Sorry, I didn't take pictures of that but I used my hubby's old exercise weight belt.

    This is the finished look of the clutch. Since this material had a light color backing which you can see n the edges, I rubbed brown liquid shoe polish over the edges to give it a natural "leather" look. In hindsight, I should have done this before gluing everything together. Since I had so much fabric left I decided to make a cut out statement necklace. which I will show in part two. In the meantime, I glued the actual cutouts to the leather clutch for a more decorative look.
