Clutch Purse

This funky clutch crafted by Sharee Johnson (All Things Necktie at requires some sewing skill but pays off in wow factor. You can use one necktie or two, depending on whether you want both the body and the flap to be made from the same tie fabric. The ties must be cut apart and re-sewn together for width (Johnson’s final product is nine inches wide and four inches high), pressed to some medium-weight interfacing and lined. Using the pointed tie end as the flap, Johnson adds a magnetic snap for the closure.
