This is a fun and simple clutch that even beginners can make without much difficulty. The recessed top zipper is added to avoid things from slipping out, thus making this a very practical bag. Don’t worry if you are not familiar with zippers. With correct measurements and techniques, the zipper part can be done in a short time. The bonus is the 6 FLAP DESIGNS to suit your style or fancy.
The sample pictures show how pretty the clutches are in different fabric combinations. Use polka dots, floral, plain fabrics for the flap or body to add interesting features to your clutch. But even with a single fabric all over, the finished bag is still beautiful.
If you wish to add more pockets inside or on the back,a tutorial on making a zippered pocket is given in the appendix.
The suitable fabric is cotton or light-weight linen. Medium-thick interfacing can provide a good structure to the bag. You can omit the strap and use the bag as a clutch.
Skill – intermediate / confident beginner.
