Transform An Old Skirt Into A Glam Evening Clutch

We all have those old skirts that don't fit into our lives anymore, whether it's too short, too tight, or too frumpy. It's sad to say good-bye, but if only we could salvage that awesome material...
The good news is that you can! Our intrepid DIY expert Chloe Daley figured out a way to transform those skirts into an expensive-looking clutch that even a crafting newbie could figure out. Seriously — if you can sew on a button and operate a glue gun, you can make a clutch that looks like you picked it up at Prada. Check out our video to slap one together yourself!
