I've been seeing envelope clutches all over Pinterest lately and I've been brainstorming about how to make my own. I recently bought a good deal of leather from Tandy and got a bit of leather that looked like it would great for an envelope clutch. :D

This weekend I decided to draw up my own envelope clutch pattern and document how to make it - I've attached the pattern on step two for download.

If you've got everything on hand you should be able to make the clutch in about 15 minutes. :)

Step 1: What you'll need:

If you want your envelope clutch to be reversible, make sure to choose a leather where you like both sides. One side of the piece I'm using is vinyl-y, the other is suede-y.

Also choose a leather than can fold easily on itself - if it's too thick, it'll be hard to work with.

Where do you get your leather?
<p>I ordered everything online through Tandy Leather! They've got a great range of stuff. Depending on where you live, they might be able to connect you to a local store for extra help picking out what you need. :)</p>
<p>Sooooo neat! Would make a perfect laptop sleeve. Thanks!</p>
I was unable to locate the pattern. Did I miss it?
<p>It's at the very bottom of step two - but if you're on the app or mobile site it might be missing! Sometimes the attached files don't show up if you're not in Firefox/Chrome/etc. </p>
