This is the Collage Clutch/Crossbody Bag FREE pdf sewing pattern from the designer Yoan Sewing Studio.
This is one of those great Bag projects where you can use up some of your fabric scraps. The designer will show you how to make this fabulous Collage Clutch Bag, including the super fun collage patchwork technique.
And if you are not sure what collage patchwork is it’s a technique of layering and overlapping pieces of fabric scraps on a surface (can be batting, tulle, muslin, etc) to create a new “art fabric”. The designers method of collage patchwork is pretty simple, take a piece of batting, then add random pieces of fabric scraps, use fabric basting glue stick to temporary hold them together, then sew running stitches to bind these fabrics together.
With this bag the designer also says that you can take this project to a new level by adding embroidery, beads, ribbon, appliques, or any fun embellishments that you can think of. There is no limit to express your creativity here.
When you have finished making your very own Collage Clutch Bag it will measure approximately 9½” (24 cm) by 6½” (16.5 cm).
