Chances are if you’ve been around See Kate Sew long, you’ve made yourself a clutch. Maybe it was my sequin + leopard zip clutch or Kate’s ridiculously cute leather polka dot clutch. If you’re anything like I am, every time you pull out a clutch for a night out you face the quandary of how to compactly fit your cash, ID, and cards. I don’t know about you, but my normal wallet is the size of many of my clutches. Today’s project is a three-step DIY to make a mini leather wallet perfect for a clutch.
