J. Crew or Homemade?

I saw a simple clutch from J. Crew that I really liked, but it cost $88.00! What!?! I decided to try and revamp one of my own old clutches to get the same great look for a lot less buck. Here are the instructions and results:

I started with an old fake Louis, several designer tacs, and 1/2 of a yard of silky fabric.

I took the clutch and began to drape it in the fabric, tacking the fabric in place.

I then pulled the excess fabric over to the left side and twisted it into a bud, using fabric glue to secure to the other fabric.

Ta Da. What do you think? Not exactly the same, but better than $88.00.
