Recycled Leather Clutch

My friends have been incredibly generous donating their old leather coats to me when they heard I was upcycling the leather into bags.  Perhaps my telling them that their Duran Duran, Members Only Jackets were no longer in fashion had something to do with it.  🙂  In any case, I now have 4 leather jackets in addition to one I have already used, generously donated by Bianca (Thanks! I made them!.).  I decided to make up a clutch for a friend using a cherished Hmong Remnant, some printed leather and a turkish tassel I had on hand as a zipper pull.

I made up a pattern (my favorite part of creating) and used some hot pink cotton I fused with thick pellon interfacing for the lining. Next up, I’m cutting into some Anna Maria Horner voile for a hexagon variation quilt.
