My BEST-SELLING PDF tutorial now with 7 patterns. This is the most detailed tutorial with the most pictures. There are no shortcuts. There is a picture shown with every crucial step.

* Access to 8 PDFS (1 MASTER tutorial, 1 BONUS instruction booklet, 7 pattern templates for 5 differently sized frames : 3 inch, 4.5 inch, 6 inch Tea-Time Clutch(TM) and 6 inch Slim Clutch(TM), 8 inch Classic Day Clutch(TM) and 8 inch Baguette Clutch(TM), 10 inch) via a password to my blog http://clutch-me.com
* All future templates added by me will be FREE for you to download simply by using your password. So keep your password! :)
****HARD COPIES printed in 70# ultra white paper from my professional printer and hand-assembled in booklet form. There will be 2 booklets and 7 templates on 8 papers mailed to you separately.****
* ALL PREVIOUS PDF BUYERS: all new templates are free: just use the same password to access and download.


How my tutorial benefits you:

1. Two ways to make a clutch: with a bottom seam AND without a bottom seam.

* The bottom seam gives you the ability to use BOTH non-directional AND directional fabrics ie. no "back side" so you will NOT have a bird that is facing up on one side yet positioned upside down on the other side! Learn how to do it right the first time and it won't matter what fabric you are using
* Learn how to make it without a bottom seam when you want to do quick work, when you have non-directional fabric, or for smaller sizes (coin clutches) that make it difficult to line up the seams.

2. BOTH instructional booklet PDF files are specially formatted in a BOOKLET style:
* Print as many copies as you wish from your own desktop printer in full color.
* Handy BOOKLET style allows you to be able to flip it page-by-page to follow each step as you sew -- easy reference and user-friendly. Designed to take up less space on your sewing surface.
* Contains a photo for each crucial step. These detailed pics and this format is extremely beneficial for all users, especially novices and visual learners (like me!).

3. The MASTER tutorial will allow you to make any of the 7 differently-sized clutches. All 7 templates are included.

4. The second BONUS tutorial will teach you how to make ANY SIZE clutch using ANY SIZE or SHAPE u-channel metal purse frame.

5. Pictures on how to glue and insert into the frame.

Please note that the tutorial is written in English.
