Darby Smart: Oversized Studded Clutch

As part of the nifty perk program of Klout, I received a free DIY kit from those clever folks at Darby Smart. Their company compiles kits with all the ingredients to make a do-it-yourself craft which includes everything from tote bags to monogram coasters to jewelry. As soon as I got that cheerful aqua chevron patterned box in the mail, I busted that baby open and got to crafting. Darby Smart


My only confusion was in receiving a kit with supplies for a studded clutch, but with an instructional card for soy candles. I was assured, however, in a prompt and friendly manner by the Darby Smart Tweeps:


The leather clutch itself is a very soft and yummy texture. Great for carrying a kindle and smartphone and headphones or tossing in a magazine or three in lieu of the unfashionable plastic bag (perish the thought!).

Assembling the little studs took me 5-10 minutes and using the fabric glue was very easy. The instructions said to let the studs dry for 24 hours, which I did.

I will definitely keep my eyes peeled for more Darby Smart kits because this was tres fun and having all the items needed all in one place arrive at my doorstep was just the thing for this mama on the go.
