DIY Oversized Convertible Clutch

DIY Oversized Convertible Clutch
When it comes to bags, totes and clutches these I never get tired of.  When your having one of those I feel like wearing jeans, flipflops and a tee day, adding an awesome clutch, tote or bag can make your look a bit more festive.  Forget the arm candy, grab a hot bag and allow that to make a statement.

This bag is pretty fantastic considering you can transition easily from day with the tote and night with the clutch.  I look forward to adding this to my rotation.

    Your DIYs always have a touch of elegant to them, I cant pick my finger on it but they always seem so Vogue.

    Hey Nikki, First off I love your blot.. actually i think i am kind of a groupie 😉 I am gonna try and do this bag… the one thing i dont get is why didnt you just buy brown leather? instead of dying the leather u do have..

    Thank you 🙂 I prefer to dye the leather because it gives you the ability to build a color. With this bag the color is Cordovan which is more of a burgundyish brown, so much richer and prettier than a traditional brown.

    Hi Nikki, I found your blog about a month ago and I am loving it. I pinned so much to my pinterest. The things you do are amazing. You are helping me with my champagne taste and beer pocket. I will be moving into a house next year and will be using your sewing room for my inspiration. Keep on doing what you do!!
