Make A Transparent Bag With An Interchangeable Design
Here we go with our mutant bag tutorial. This transparent bag can become any color in the world. It has a pocket inside that allows you to put pictures, drawings or whatever you want.
This DIY tutorial is brought to you by Sylvia from Dare to DIY. For this project, she used a watercolor butterfly pattern, which she made herself, and also a Hermès Jigè pattern.
- A clear PVC sheet: It shouldn’t be too thick, mine is 0,3 mm.
- Wool, or a thin string, leather lace…
- Wool needle
- Felt tipped pen and scissors
- A magnetic bag closure
- Cut the main piece for the clutch. I use 2 rectangle pieces of 11.5 inches x 16 inches. Cut the two side pieces. I use pieces of 6 inches x 1.5 inches with rounded corners. Once you have them cut, take them to the bookbinding store and get them drilled. Remember to leave the corners without drillings.
- Insert the pattern you want to use in the open side of the main piece and sew both pieces with the wool.
- Burn a pin and make 4 holes in the rounded corners.
- Use a pencil or an awl to make the holes bigger.
- Attach the main piece to the side pieces by sewing them.
- Try to make regular stitches so you can get a beautiful finish.
- Put the magnet on the flap before closing the bag with the other side.
You can use any kind of pattern for the clutch.
There you go! You just made yourself a one of a kind clutch with interchangeable designs!
