Asteria Clutch Bag

All posts may contain affiliate links.

One of my favorite clutch bag patterns. Can add a wrist strap if you like, or not. The pleats are so neat, and give the bag structure and style so it looks good even in a solid fabric. I'm longing to make my next one in a special glitter satin I've been keeping. Nice clutch bag pattern.

This pleated clutch is easy to make, and designed to showcase some awesome pleating! Make it for special occasions, events, or just for a fun night out! Perfect to make as a bridesmaids set to get the perfect colors.

This wristlet is designed for a confident beginner sewist, and features a simple design with many color photos to facilitate easy learning. Because of the pleats, it looks great in a solid as well as interesting in a printed fabric.  How about making a really posh one in a satin or silk for an evening bag.  Check out some quilting weight cottons with glitter and metallic accents below.
