DIY Slouchy Clutch in Black

So there’s this pouch/clutch, right? And I love it. I just don’t want to pay what they’re asking for it. So you know what that means! It’s project time!!!

(first version w/messed up zipper!)

I found a YouTube video on how to make your own American Apparel pouch, and of course it brings the cost so far down it’s not even funny. It costs less to make your own, and I’m always down for a new project! 😉 Thankfully this is extremely simple, and I promise that it isn’t time consuming.

DIY AA Pouch!

I couldn’t find what I needed locally, so I went to JoAnn fabrics and picked up a 14 inch zipper. I’m mad that I had to drive 40 miles to find the style of zipper that I wanted in the length that I needed, but that’s another story for another day. I mean, really. It’s a zipper. *grumble grumble* So I used the same instructions as in the previously mentioned video, but I decided to add a lining to it as well. And it’s pretty. 🙂
