This is my new tweed clutch. I made it myself. From a pair of pants. Seriously.
I'm not kidding. Check it out...
I had these wide leg tweed pants from Banana Republic that I hadn't worn in years, and rather than just throw them out or give them away, I decided to recycle. I followed this wonderful tutorial from Say Yes to Hoboken, and in just a few hours I had this fabulous fold-over clutch. I still don't know quite what to do with it, but I am sort of in love. And then best part is I still have another pant leg to cannibalize!
shirt: Oysho, sweater: Cos, jeans: H&M, blazer & ex-pants: Banana Republic
Oh and did I mention? The pants were part of a suit. So now, even though I'd have thought it would be the last thing I would ever want, I have a blazer with a matching clutch. Somehow the pop of yellow makes it totally ok in my book.
Do you repurpose your old clothing? If it's a heavier fabric, I highly recommend trying this out!
