DIY Idea: Studded Pouch

If I wasn't such a pack mule, carrying my life in my bag, I would love to abandon my trusty satchel for a clutch and go the "I'm-at-fashion-week-and-I-don't-know-how-to-use-bag-handles" route. You know what I'm talking about.

Were I to give up the trusty shoulder strap, I'd personalize a pouch with a little DIY. Wouldn't it be fun to update a basic leather pouch with a studded border and wrist strap a la Valentino? I hope you're not getting sick of studs...

By the way, here's a pictorial tutorial on how to sew your own leather pouch!

Have you hugged your clutch today?
