The Flourish Clutch is a very elegant sewing pattern for creating your very own framed clutch in a simple rectangle frame. Three sizes of clutch bag in the same pattern, and each one perfectly pleated to give space for your essentials without looking bulky.
This pattern is simple to put together and ends up with fantastic results. You can create it from luxurious silks and satins for a glamorous evening clutch, or use beautifully patterned cotton for a more casual look. It can even be made with thin vinyl or leather.
This pretty rectangle frame clutch purse pattern comes in three sizes, so which one do you want to make, or will you make them all? The designer says that this pattern is best suited for intermediate sewers and up. Diagrams and a photo tutorial are included.
