I’ve been meaning to do this DIY for a while and was reminded of those lost plans when I recently came across a spotted clutch that was very pricey. Granted, that one is a lot better quality than this one I made, but for how easy this was to make (no sewing, the title is correct), I’m more focused on how it turned out really cute and gets the job done.
The fabric design is inspired by the leopard spotted print from the PBteen x Emily & Merritt collection, which I drew by hand using a black fabric marker. That totally does not have to be a part of the DIY- you can use any fabric of course, and I recommend using a heavier weight/outdoor cotton since it will be much more durable.
And of course, this could be done with sewing and would be a lot more durable that way and should probably be the first line of action if possible, but for the don’t-have-or-want-to-get-a-sewing-machine-or-know-how-to-sew club, this option will satisfy the craving. For all my no sew DIYs, I use this fabric glue which has held up SO well across all my no sew projects. Literally sewing in a tube.

I’ve been meaning to get a pouch for all of my pens and pencils. This looks perfect!
Would definitely work for pens and pencils, too. Thanks, Andrea!
the link doesn’t work! :(
Sorry about that. Just fixed the link, it should work now!
It’s been such a long time since I last made a new pouch! I have to make one of the new season! Your pouch looks lovely!
I totally feel like I need a new one each season haha. Thanks so much, Angelina!
Lovely! Curious as to whether you’d consider giving YouTube a try… would love to see your DIYs in video format!
No plans at the moment- it really scares me to be honest! But I do think that’s something I need to move into in the future. Thanks for the feedback, Laura!
what an awesome idea……going to go buy some glue tonight. Thanks for sharing.
I hope you love the glue any fraction of the amount that I love it <3 Let me know how it works out for you!
I would say it looks just as good as any store bought pouch. I am all for the ‘no sew’ approach.
Thanks for sharing!!!!!
Aw thanks, Cheryl! I’m all for no sew as well. I literally have nowhere to put a sewing machine.
That’s such a cute little pouch! I spied your project out on Pinterest, and have scheduled a post on Craft Gossip (sewing) pointing to your tutorial for later this morning.
Super cute! Would make a great gift!
You don’t even tell us how to do it. Sorry but I really want to know how to do it
