A stylish fold-over clutch bag with two sizes in the same pattern. The bag has a boxed base to give you more space inside the bag, and a contrasting fabric for the foldover section. A small handle is optional to carry or as a hanging loop. Secure the foldover flap with a fun button or toggle if you like.
Special features of the Malmo pouch:

back exterior pocket on large pouch
main zipper closure
optional handle/hanging loop
SMALL – 5” wide on bottom x 5 ¾” tall x 1 ½” deep

Skill level: advanced beginner (some experience working with zippers and fusible interfacing is recommended)
I recommend using Essex linen, denim, designer canvas, or cotton/linen blend for the exterior panel of the pouch (FABRIC A). Quilting cotton can also be used, but your finished pouch will not be as sturdy. Quilting cotton will work great for the exterior flap panel as well as the lining.
