I got this ugly handbag in Primark years ago. I think I have used no more than 10 times and was about to put it in the bin not a long time ago. I kept it though with the purpose of recycling the pieces.

To make this fold-over clutch I have used the zip and some of the vynil-fabric.

To be honest, I have no idea where or when I bought this fabric. I do not really like it, I find it a bit sad and seems I also recycled it from old curtains. Anyway, it was perfect to match with the brown recycled pieces and to train to make my first fold over clutch.

I think I am going to recycle more pieces and make a strap for it, but it will be later.

  1. A perfect example of how to upcycle old pieces. It looks lovely together. Did you use some sort of backing inside?


Thanks for leaving a comment ;)
