Sunrise Clutch Paper-Pieced

Sunrise Clutch Bag Sewing Pattern. This clutch features a great foundation paper-pieced exterior together with a recessed zipper and optional wrist strap.

This clutch features a great foundation paper-pieced exterior. Even if you have never paper pieced before, you will be able to navigate through this template. The pattern includes the paper-piecing templates used to make the clutch, and this design is not technically complicated for someone who has never paper-pieced before. 

The clutch also features a structured top, a recessed zipper, and an optional wrist strap. This pattern is also scrap-friendly, so feel free to use up those small bits from your stash!

Although the blocks take a bit more time than regular quilt piecing, the results are often amazing. Paper-piecing provides sharp points and angles that you often could never get from regular piecing.

The pdf pattern includes 11 pages of sewing instructions, templates, and 23 color step-by-step photos. And the finished size of the bag is 12″ long by 6-1/2″ tall.
