Rug Clutch


\
As promised...
Here's what you'll need to make your very own rug clutch: scissors, needle and thread, button, and small rug.
 First, take your rug (mine was thrifted for $1.00) and fold it so that the back fold is about 1/5 longer than the front fold. The longer fold will be the back and flap of your clutch.
Then, sew up the sides of the clutch. You can do this with a sewing machine but I did it by hand to show how simple it is even if you lack a sewing machine. It only took about five minutes.
Then, taking the flap (the extended part of the back fold), cut a small hole that will let your button fit through but still small enough that the button will be secure. Then hand stitch all the way around the hole so that it won't fray. 
 Last, you'll sew on the button of your choice to the outside of the front fold lined up with the button hole so that it fits perfectly! This project was so simple and only took about 10 minutes to create. Happy crafting! xo, Kinsey.
