Use the thread cutter and cut all the threads around the bag.

Take one piece and fold it in half and then use the scissors to cut off the handles.

Fold it in half again and use the scissors to cut it all the way.

Take the zipper and sew it onto the fabric. Continue to sew the edges together.

Use the other fabric piece that you cut out and measure the clutch to see how much you need to cut off.

*If you like short fringes, then you can cut them shorter.

Tuck the longer fabric piece inside the clutch and make sure it’s lined equally. Sew the edges to secure it.
