Cute Clutch Tutorial!
Today’s Patchwork Summer guest post is written by Tracey of Swell Sewing. I’m delighted for her to share her super cute clutch pattern with you. You’re sure to love it!
Hi there! My name is Tracey Wirth, and I hail from the blogosphere under the web address of www.swellsewing.wordpress.com.
I am guest posting today as part of Jennifer’s Patchwork Summer Series.
I couldn’t be more thrilled to be a part of it! The One-Sided Clutch is anything but One-Sided. In fact it’s named this because of the asymmetrical flap, but it has many sides. The options are endless when you start adding your color, print and quilting choices to her- she’ll blow you away with her multi faceted personality. Carry her under your arm or by her strap (which also doubles as the zipper pull).
This is a quick tutorial, in fact it can be done in about an hour- so it’s nearly “instant gratification” which is one of my favorite things. Pick an outfit out for the day or evening and have a clutch to match that very same day! Yay!
So let’s get our sewing on!
Top-stitch around the top flap of the clutch, top stitching also helps keep the magnetic closure firmly in place- and I think it makes the bag look a lot sharper.
Here is a close-up of some of my top-stitching.
I am very imperfect when it comes to top-stitching, but you won’t tell anyone, right? I am only sharing this with you. This gives you a better idea of what I did. You may also need to use your zipper foot to get around that closure. Go slow and steady so you don’t break your needle.
And now the best part!
I hope you enjoyed this tutorial as much as I did making it for you. You can see how the One-Sided Clutch is anything but one-sided. She can be sporty, sophisticated, casual all at the same time! Have fun with it and stay tuned to Ellison Lane for more Patchwork Summer Series.
Seriously cute and quick! Love that! Thanks Tracey for being a special guest and part of this series!
