I was on a mission at Hobby Lobby to grab a flower to use as a hair accessory for the photo shoot I helped style a week-and-a-half ago. But, if you are a Hobby Lobby lover like me, there is no running in and running out. There is always something new to discover or stumble upon when you least expect it.
I was reminding myself to remain focused on the goal at hand. Ha! Yeah, right. I totally lost all concentration when I spotted these little beauties...jute clutch purses. Fashionable purses at Hobby Lobby? What? Like Ren McCormick says in Footloose, "Jump back!"
Well, my friends, it's true. They have an entire section of fun and affordable jute bags, purses and my favorite, the clutch! So, I whipped out my iPhone and started taking pictures. I found some fun accent fashion pins and started playing purse dress-up. Really, Shanna? Yes, I was that girl that laid the purses on the floor in Hobby Lobby and started creating fun easy, DIY clutches.
This is a NO SEW project...just don't poke yourself when you are pinning to the purse. If you do like to sew, then your options just quadrupled, because there are so many appliques you can put on these clutches...good luck choosing...I would be wandering Hobby Lobby for days deciding what to buy!
Now to the best part, besides looking totally fab, they are only...wait for it...you won't believe it...$3.99!! The drive out price of the large one with the brown button is $5.99 and you don't have to get any additional accessories to put on it. Remember, Hobby Lobby always has a 40% off coupon on regular priced items. I use it every time I go, you can just pull it up on your phone and show the cashier.
So, here are some of my jute clutch dress-up creations.
|Bold Black Flower with White Polka Dots|
|Chic Little Cream Bow with Black Polka Dots|
|Eclectic Beaded Circle (My Personal Fave!)|
|Seashell and Beaded Square|
So, there you have it...A quick, easy, affordable and don't forget fashionable DIY clutch all for $10.00 or less! Let me know if you go out and make one. I would love to see your design...maybe it will show up on Pinterest!
Cheers...and Happy Clutching!
