DIY Petal Clutch Bag Inspired by Christian Louboutin

Nicholas Kirkwood shoes - DIY Petal Clutch Bag

DIY clutch bag

This has become one of my favorite evening clutch bags. It works well with dressed up and fancy outfits as well as with edgier looks. It’s so fun and adds just a little bit of fun to a regular clutch.

Here’s What You’ll Need…

DIY-Petal-purse-bag-clutch-Louboutin-1
* Old clutch you can sew onto {or you can use glue, but it will be messier and not last as long}
* Chiffon or sheer fabric {mine is polyester}
* Scissors/Needle Thread

I used a 9″ x 5″ vintage lace/satin snap clutch I found at Goodwill for 3.99 {if you’re going for an exact look …use a purse like this or this}

    You put me and I’m sure a lot of others to BIY shame lol, that is a brilliant idea and if you copied that little purse with clasp you would do it so much better! Your petals look almost “fluffier” and better in shape. Amazing!

    The sheer fabric I used is polyester …so the edges do fray but minimally. and I really like the look of it …it adds an edginess 🙂
