I recently found a box with leftover fabric in house and there was some tapestry fabric left from when my mum restored two antique chairs. There was very little of it but enough for this envelope-clutch. I’m actually really satisfied of how it turned out because it took me a while to figure out how to do it so that no seams were seen.

    How did you do this without seams? I’m working on a similar project & can’t figure it out

      It was actually really difficult to figure it out. I made two envelopes, one with the seams on the inside (that is the part that goes outside, so you can’t see the seams) and one with the seams on the outside. This part you put inside the other, so when you put your hand in the envelope you don’t feel the seams. But before putting one inside the other I sew them toghether at the top part (like in the picture but with the pointy edges). It’s hard to explain with words, I hope I could make it a little bit clear
