You’ll need:

* You can use a round, oval or square placemat – the steps are the same. I used an oval placemat.

Soak the placemat in water for a couple of hours – it’s necessary so that the straw doesn’t break when folding. Fold the placemat in half (with the right side facing you). Use clothes pins to hold the placemat together. Let the straw placemat dry.

DIY Straw Clutch - Sew Zipper

Stitch the zipper in place. You can use a sewing machine or attach the zipper with running stitches by hand. I wanted to sew outside, so I hand-stitched the zipper in place. Trim the zipper if it’s too long.
