Here we have found you a great Pleated Pouch free sewing pattern from a great designer – Christie from Lemon Squeezy Home. This is an oldie but goodie to sew a pretty pleated clutch bag.
We all love a small zipper bag, and this one is no exception. With some pretty piping and the interesting pleats, you could make this from a simple cotton fabric as a cosmetics bag or add something a little smarter, perhaps in a special fabric for a smart evening clutch bag.
The way the pleats are folded really sets this one apart. It’s perfect for an every day small clutch to take out with you, or for a small pretty zipper storage bag. For the evening, we’re thinking a nice brocade, a simple satin or something sumptuous in silks!

The designer says that you should not let the pleats scare you or be put off by the length of the tutorial. To help you, she has included many pictures to help explain things clearly to you. She actually says that the cutting takes more time than the actual sewing does, in most cases!
