DIY vs. BIY Leather Clutches

Weeks ago me and my sister decided to play with some leather I bought time ago. We choose to make some leather clutches and we started trying to dye the leather. The process was easy because we have all the materials in home.



For dyeing leather you will need spray paint of any color or there are special fabric paints which are better for the final results, masking tape and remember to put something (nylon, paper, cardboard) to mantain the surface down below clean.

We really enjoy all the process and it is perfect to try it for making a present or even use it yourself. Good luck!! and I hope you like it. clutch7

love Nina 😉
