Materials I used:
grid/template I made on the computer
box cutter/exacto knife
1 I used a rectangular piece of vinyl folded in half. There will be a front and a back. Honestly I found this piece in the remnants section at my local JoAnn Fabrics. I'm sure you can use whatever type of sturdy material you'd like to use.
2 Made sure that my grid/table was centrally located on the top side of my folded vinyl. This is the front part of my clutch.
3 To make sure that my grid/table didn't move around I put some duck tape to keep it in place.
4 I put my old magazine inside my folded vinyl to make sure that I only punctured through the front part. Then, I started poking through where the lines intersected. Side note: Make sure that you have enough brass fasteners for your grid or else you'll have a problem later.
5 After puncturing the vinyl with the box cutter, it was easier to put the brass fastener.
6 I checked the "wrong" side of the material to make sure that the brass fastener went
7 After putting through all of the fasteners, I lined them up horizontally
8 I also made sure that the back of the fasteners were flat with a small hammer. Remember to use an old magazine on the underside of the material.
9 Time to flip it back to the front part of the bag and take the grid and tape off!!
10 Once the paper and tape are off then I sewed it into a clutch with lining and zipper.
