The Sew4Home Bow Clutch with Slip-Through Pleated Hand Hold is a PDF sewing pattern. This digital pattern is only available to print at home by instant download, immediately after completing checkout. As an ePattern, it includes instructions and photos to take you through each step of the construction. The ePattern does not include materials. Instructions are in English. We do not offer translation services at this time.
Our pretty little purse with its big, bold bow makes a dynamic fashion statement. And, the unique slip-through pleated band is a very clever way to clutch this clutch. Simply slide your hand behind the band and grab onto the bottom of the pouch to carry.
We used a pretty sateen weight cotton with a strong horizontal motif, which we played up across the front and with the pleated band. Sateen refers to the weave pattern of the cotton, using a one yarn under, three or four yarns over pattern. This gives it a slightly heavier feel than standard quilting cotton, a softer finish, and a bit of a sheen. It’s a lovely look for an evening bag, but you could substitute standard quilting cotton without any construction drawbacks.
The pouch is fast and easy, and a perfect party accessory that can amp up your style without emptying your wallet. For even more elegance, look for a sparkly zipper, like the silver metallic option we chose.
Of course, this would be just as fun as a casual bag. Change up the colors and fabric with neutrals for a classic look or brights for a fun, summer vibe.
Our pouch finishes at approximately 6½" high x 9½” wide.
Open the last photo for fabric requirements. A list of supplies and fabric requirements is also included within the ePattern.
