You can create this elegant little fabric clutch with my clear, accurate PDF pattern & instructions. The front pleated "Twist" detail looks couture but I have done all the draping & pattern-making for you -just follow step by step! Some previous sewing experience is required for this project.

It's closed with a sunken/ hidden zip construction for a clean, professional-looking finish. The clutch is fully lined & has an internal pocket for extra practicality.This pattern now comes with the option to add a useful wrist strap that you can pop in or out -converting the clutch into a wristlet as you please.

The finished clutch will measure approx. 19cm wide x 13 cm tall (71/2" x 5") with a 5cm (2") wide base at the widest part -a cute but practical shape for evening or weddings.

Some feedback I have received for this pattern:
"Thank you for creating this pattern...the instructions were so easy. I am just re-learning how to sew after doing some in my teenage years. I have been buying bag patterns this past year (more than 30), and boy this was one of the easiest and looks the best.  Your instructions and photos were very clear and easy to follow. The recessed zipper looks so good...."
"I’ve just made this one, and I love it, even though I speak spanish and don’t have a perfect english, the instructions were very easy to follow.. "

If you wish to add a leather tassel zip pull, I have posted a free tutorial on my blog:

This design would best suit medium to heavyweight fabrics such as duchess satin, shantung, Dupion, brocade, jacquard, heavy polished cotton...or slightly lighter weight fabrics with the addition of suitable re-inforcement. Not so suitable for fabrics which crease heavily, such as pure linens. A fantastic way to use vintage or reclaimed fabrics!

Please note you are purchasing the pattern & instructions to make this item, not the finished item.



*Fabric for the clutch exterior: at least approx. a 35 x 60cm(14” x 24”) piece. If buying off the roll you will need a 35cm (14“) length.

*Fabric for lining: at least approx. 65 x 20cm (25 1/2” x 8”). If buying off the roll you will need a 20cm (8”) length.

*Mid-weight fusible woven interfacing: Required for Pocket, facings & optional strap. In addition, all but the very stiffest fabrics will benefit from fusing interfacing to the entire front & back panels to add body. It is also advisible to reinforce the lining panels with a fusible interfacing, especially if using a slippy or lightweight lining fabric. Highly recommended: Pellon ShapeFlex Woven Fusible #SF-101 or Vilene Woven fusible G700. To cover both lining, exterior & all other required panels: if 90cm (35 1/2”) wide, 40cm(16”) length; if 51cm(20”) wide, 70cm(27 1/2”)length.

*Non-Fusible Stabilizer: this clutch requires a firm non-fusible Heavy-weight interfacing & this will give a semi-structured, boxy feel. Use “Vilene Extra-Heavy Sew-in” (this comes in 90cm/35” width, you need 20cm/8” length) or “Pellon Peltex 70 Sew-in Ultra firm (this comes in 51cm/20” width -you need 28cm/11“ length).

*Zip: Closed end zip, minimum 25cm/10” length (longer is fine as the excess can be trimmed), 6mm (3/16th“) width teeth. The zip can be nylon or metal but it’s important that the teeth are not narrower than this.

*Hemming Tape: 1.5 -2.5cm (5/8” -1”) width fusible tape, such as “Wondaweb”.

tools required: domestic sewing machine, scissors, scalpel, iron, needle & thread, chalk or pencil, pins.
