    Download and cut out the template provided. Cut two 2 x 8.5 in. strips and two saw handle pieces out of the tooling leather. Make sure that you flip the handle template over when you trace it the second time in order to get a mirrored effect for the clutch handle.

    Description 
    Use a ruler and pen (I used a disappearing ink pen) to space out the stitching holes on the strips of leather evenly. Afterward, fold the beige leather piece in half and place one of the strips about half an inch over the top of one of the beige leather ends. Use the holes in the leather strip as a guide to poke aligning holes through the beige leather piece.

    Description 
    Lay down one of the saw handles so the base is flush with the leather strip. Trace the inside of the handle along the strip and cut it out. Do the same for the other side, making sure the saw handles are aligned and mirrored to one another.

    Attach the tooling leather to the suede leather by using a back stitch with the embroidery floss.

    Description 
    Attach the saw handle by using the awl to poke through the same holes as the leather strip. Feel free to change embroidery flosses the way I did, or keep the same color going. I find that changing colors gives the saw handle more detail. Use a running stitch to connect the saw handle to the rest of the tooling leather and to give it an outline. Repeat this process with the other side.

    Use the awl, ruler, and pen once again to evenly space out the holes for the stitches on the suede leather on both sides. Afterward, use a back stitch to close the suede on both sides.

    Lastly, use tacky glue to attach the black leather saw trim beneath the handle. The trim was a tad bit long, so rather than cutting it off, I glued the remainder around the backside of the clutch.
