DIY leather clutch & earrings with Hidesign

Hi girls,

Have you ever created anything ‘best out of waste’? I’m sure many of you must have done it in school. I used to love craft classes in school. Though our craft teacher was very strict, I used to really enjoy creating beautiful things. But after school somehow I never tried anything….Later when I finished medical education, I started using my creativity in styling my own outfits. An year back I started penning it down and that’s how blogging started. But I hardly tried ‘DIY’ing till now.

This is my 2nd DIY post. My first DIY was ‘tulle cape’. Now I have decided to do DIY experiments more often & share with you all.

I had never thought DIYing leather things would be so easy until I came across this ‘The Art of reuse’ contest by Hidesign. Last month only I discarded my torn leather jacket while cleaning my closet. If at all I had an idea that it can be reused, I would have got a chance to make lot of leather goodies. But never mind, there’s always next time….

So I was talking about ‘The Art of reuse’ by Hidesign……. When I came to know about the contest, I immediately registered and rushed to the nearest Hidesign store to collect my raw material. I had only two days with me to post my Artpiece on social media. So I had to make it in a day. In the ‘Art of reuse bag’, there were 7 pieces of leftover leather, a punch, needle and wax coated thread. It was a big challenge cause the leather pieces provided were quite small.

First, I decided the pattern in my mind and then cut the pieces of leather in desired shapes and sizes. After cutting, I made holes on the pieces by using punch and a hammer. After making holes I stitched them together. The thread provided by them was not sufficient….So I used brown wool for stitching remaining part. For securing the opening, I made two blue leather flaps with velcro. And finished it with a Hidesign logo which I made from blue leather piece.

Similarly I made earrings by using remaining small pieces. That was the easiest part.

Now comes the styling part!!!….. I paired my artpieces with an off shoulder white top and maroon harem pants. Completed the look with blue pumps, a blue nail polish and nude make-up and I was ready to go……
