Heidi fold over clutch bag – free pattern and video

Free foldover clutch bag purse sewing pattern from Swoon. I love the options for this, and the extra zipper pocket which makes it very versatile and easy to use/sew.

This cute fold-over clutch bag pattern is free!  And it comes in two different sizes – one as a clutch bag and a smaller wristlet option with strap.  This bag looks great with leather or vinyl accents pieces, or why not try it with Kraft Tex.  Learn more about Kraft Tex here if it’s a product you’ve not heard of before.

Learning about the new 'paper fabric' product called Kraft Tex and how you can get a leather-like appearance by treating it before sewing. Great for wallets.

You may have seen fold-over clutch bag patterns before but we really like this one for the extra added features such as the sizing options, the vinyl accents, the useful extra pockets, the smooth curved front, and the free downloadable pattern.

A versatile, foldover style, that is ideal for both casual and formal events. A magnetic snap holds the shape of the bag, folded perfectly in place, and a concealed back zippered pocket keeps your small items secure. Optional vinyl accents like a bottom overlay and zipper pulls add a polished look to an otherwise simple and classic bag.
