Coraline Clutch bag pattern with sew-along video
The Coraline Clutch & Wristlet is the ideal small clutch bag purse to take out for the evening. With two sizes and two styles of clutch, you’ll be able to mix and match to sew several bags from the same pattern.
Coraline is relatively quick to sew, making it ideal to sew as a gift, sew up quickly for a night out this evening, or even sew a bunch for matching as bridesmaid bags!
Depending on the fabric you choose, these bags can be playful and fun, formal, or chic and glamorous.
This pattern includes two clutch sizes; small (11” wide) and large (14” wide)
Both sizes can be made with the handles but if you prefer a smaller or simpler clutch, the small one can be turned into a wristlet by skipping the handles and adding a strap.
All three options include a recessed zipper closure on top – we love that curved shape but don’t worry, the zipper is still easy to sew.

This is a step-by-step for the smaller wristlet version, prepared for us by Sarah of Living Lady Designs Etsy store. She sells these wristlets in her store, so she has sewn them many times and describes perfectly and clearly how to sew one from start to finish, with all the details that a complete beginner might need.
Enjoy this video on how to get perfect results when you sew this wristlet. You can get the pattern from Swoon at the bottom of this article and then get to sewing a lot of great new bags for you, your friends, or even to sell.
