It's time to make an envelope clutch!

Are you a woman or young lady who carries around with her a giant purse that is always filled with things up to the rim?

How about carrying a handmade envelope clutch with you that you have made?

It's such a freeing feeling when you carry a little envelope clutch instead of a huge one while on the go. When compared to your heavy regular clutch bag, it feels so lightweight and slimy. Making an envelope-style clutch with the fabric and color of your choice would be fun.

It's a project for beginners, so if you've never been to bag making before, this is a perfect project to continue with!

  • 1/2 yard fabric (or 1 fat quarter)
  • 1/2 yard lining (or 1 fat quarter)
  • 1/2 yard mid-weight fusible interfacing
  • 1 button, any size
  • needle & thread for closing
  • pinking shears(optional)

  1. Take the lining out and add 1/8′′ to 1/4′′ while pinning the top flap. It is a trick that allows the lining to remain in your pocket, so it doesn't peep out.
