DIY: Cellu-lace clutch

It was a while ago when Company magazine asked me to lend my DIY skill for their Blogger DIY feature, I believe the May issue is still available in newsagents.  I was very inspired by Simone Rocha SS12 collection, I love their use of lace trims, appliques and conceptual materials that romanticise the whole aesthetic-minimal look.  To create an ideal accessory using the similar elements it would have to be in a form of a clutch bag, an IT bag that everyone will talk about.

I chose to use a clear sheet of PVC from Borovick Fabrics Ltd, guipure lace from Kleins and clear concealed zip from John Lewis.  Unfortunately I don’t have any magic tricks to show to you but do stay tuned for part 2 in mid June, I’m currently working on a maid of honour dress for myself to wear at my sister’s wedding next month so there’ll be another DIY piece to blog about.

Be sure to check the others too, Charlie May‘s sport luxe top, Christine Leech‘s club Tropicana earrings, and Amy Marks‘s lace collar.

  4. Wow this is amazing post, the pvc and lace clutch looks beautiful, I can’t wait for the step by step process so I can make one myself.

  5. A seriously piece of work, you made diy look easy but in my eyes it looks difficult.
