revamped clutch

 one of my favorite things to do is thrift shop.
if you look closely, you may find vintage items that are worth a lot of money; or you might just find something old that you can spice up and turn into something special. 
i found this old bag at a thrift shop earlier this week.
the brand is opi, which i think is the brand of cosmetic bags that you can find at wal mart.
so i thought, why not turn it into a clutch.
i think that clutches are the cutest things ever.
so take a look into what i did: 

 here's the bag, just as i found it.

i found this yellow chevron fabric from craft warehouse. 
i thought that it would be the perfect color for fall.

using the fabric, i sewed a pouch for the clutch.
it's kind of like a slip cover.
i thought it would be nice to make it removable, just in case i want to make a few different covers for different occasions. 

i love everything girly, so i wanted to add a feminine touch.
my mom had found this dress at a thrift shop that had some beautiful ruffles.
i decided to cut out one of the ruffles and sew it around the edge of the clutch cover.

much prettier!

i will be making more covers to show you soon!
