DIY Painted American Apparel Clutch

{images a la Atlantic-Pacific & Just B}

I had to post about this immediately.  In fact, I am thinking of starting a ‘Breaking Blog News’ section – but then, painted purses … probably not breaking news … in the scheme of news-worthy events and all.

Remember when I fell hard for American Apparel’s copycat clutches?  A few clever bloggers have taken their clutches to the next color-blocking level, and voila – the painted clutch.

Instructions here.



  1. I think its worthy of breaking news, personally:) love the neon orange one

    I am loving the first painted clutch, the colors go so well together!

    It’s a marvelous idea for the crafty. 🙂
