19 Handmade Clutches for Fall

The fashion blogs have spoken, and the one trend they’re all obsessing over for Fall is the oversize clutch. And while I originally could not get down with its popularity (how the heck would a tiny bag hold all of my important items?), I am learning to love them… even the part where I’ve had to adjust to not being able to throw my bag over my shoulder. At least my posture is thankful!

Whether you prefer neutral tones or splashy patterns, there are plenty of options to wet your proverbial whistle. Clutches also make a perfect beginner sewer project, as they don’t require much fabric or complicated lines. First, check out our gallery of awesome clutches for inspiration—and then read on here for patterns that will take you step-by-step through making your own. (And don’t worry if you cave in and purchase one instead – we don’t judge!)

This patchwork clutch from Blackbird and the Owl is made with handmade suede and leather.

Some of then are nice and look like a brand new model, like I never have seen before, but some of them, I can barely figure they can be used :)
