A clutch bag is a stylish handbag to use as an accessory to complement evening wear. You can decorate your clutch bag by adding varied accessories to the front flap. This can be used to personalise the bag and to aid in creating a unique look for the party. It is generally more attractive to use only one type of accessory for each bag to keep it simple and stylish. You can also choose colours that will match your outfit. This applies to the accessories and the bag itself.

  1. 1

    Decorate your clutch bag by adding rhinestones and semi-precious stones. Use fabric glue to attach these to the front of the bag. You can create your own design by making patterns with the gems. Some ideas include floral designs and swirls. Adding rhinestones will give your clutch bag a sparkling appearance. These stones are available to purchase online and at craft stores.

  2. 2

    Use coloured felt as a material for customising your clutch bag. Cut the pieces of felt into the desired shapes and stick them onto the front of the bag using fabric glue. Use your imagination to come up with creative ideas for shapes. You could use anything from ducks to pineapples to footprints. If you find it difficult to create the desired shapes from the felt, try using a stencil to make a template by drawing an outline onto the felt before you begin cutting.

  3. 3

    Look around the house for materials you can use to accessorise your clutch bag such as buttons, beads and broaches. You can sew or glue buttons onto your bag using fabric glue to add embellishment. Alternatively, you can use feathers or ribbons to create interesting detail.
