DIY - Buttoned Clutch

I'd been wanting an oversized clutch for quite sometime now but I was never satisfied with any of them in the shops. My mom recently got this black one gifted to her. It's excellent quality leather. But it's black. And I wanted something that would add colour to my outfits. So I decided to add the colour on the clutch! My mom stitches so she has a menagerie of vintage and new buttons. And I thought that that was just what this clutch needed. (Did I blow you away with my use of menagerie?)
All you need is a variety of colourful buttons and a needle and thread. Knowing how to sew a button on helps too. (If you don't, shame on you! Just kidding.)
I woke up the seamstress in me and got stitching! All I did was choose an assortment of colourful buttons, in different shapes and sizes, and stitched them on the top space of the clutch. This was easy with this clutch as the leather is very soft and pliable. 
Make sure you open up the clutch completely and smooth out the lining so that the thread doesn't get caught in the front and back lining. I stitched about 4-5 buttons at one time with the same length of thread.

And ta-da! The finished clutch.

I love how kitsch it looks! 
So if you wanna jazz up any old purses/ clutches, try this out!
