Placemat Clutch Purse

I just completed a swap where we made clutch purses using a regular placemat.  I found a placemat at Target that I thought was kind of cute.  I liked the colors and it was not an average looking placemat so I thought it might be a fun one to use. 

I happened to have a fabric that I thought would be perfect for the lining and then I made the fun fabric flower to cover the snap on the outside.  I think it really turned out cute!!  I love the colors! :)
Here is the link to the Fabric Placemat Clutch Swap and the Placemat Clutch Tutorial.  Try it!  It is super easy and really fun with lots of possibilities!! :)
