Shopping for gifts and waiting for packages can sometimes feel a little stressful. So why not make your own gifts this year? We have tons of DIY gift ideas for Christmas that are easy to make, including this leather clutch.
When you’re ready to get started, check out our tools and materials list below. Then download our pattern and follow along with our video tutorial.
Clutch on to what you love
There’s something about a handmade gift that just feels a little more meaningful. This leather clutch is perfect for anyone who doesn’t want to carry around a purse or just needs to make a quick trip out with a few essential items. And using our pattern means you don’t have to spend a lot of time figuring out how to craft it!
Overall this is a very simple craft project, though we do recommend using a Cricut Maker or Silhoutte Cameo 4 with our SVG file to cut your leather. If you don’t have one of these machines, you can also use our PDF template, scissors, and a 2mm leather hole punch to cut your leather by hand.
