Picture of Leather Envelope Clutch

I had seen a similar clutch in a small retail store and knew that I wanted to create something similar. With one of my sisters birthdays coming up, I had an excuse to design and make one!

It ended up being very simple and quick to make (less than a day start to finish).


  • I added D Rings to attach a strap, but did not make one.
