|Inspiration: Kate Spade Lawn Party Raine Bag $390|
one black straw placemat (Walmart $2.00)
golden and black sequin trims (the length will depend on the size of your clutch/bag or whatever you're embellishing) - I bought mine at JoAnns
Fabri-Tac glue (Walmart, any craft store)
1-2 sheets of black craft felt
purse zipper in desired lenghth
gold acrylic paint - optional
I am purposely not writing up my own step-by-step tutorial for this since I used this wonderful tutorial from Crafter.org. The link has great photos too. The only thing was... I can't sew... so, I partly hand-stitched partly glued (Fabri-Tac)... Anyway, was quite messy inside, but outside of the clutch is OK. What do you think? Also, I am not writing up a tutorial, because there are so many wonderful ones online. If you Google "placemat clutch DIY" you'll find many versions of this.
Also, please visit beautiful Anne of Wobisobi blog who had made various placemat clutches.

|I glued the black piece with a zipper to the clutch (not recommended, but had no choice since I can't sew)|
As I was working on this project I thought a black straw hat would look cute with sequin trim on it. Just a thought.
