Foldover Clutch


I love clutches and I keep seeing these type of clutches all around the internet so it was time to make one for myself! Whilst doing some research into making one I found a ton of tutorials online. I don't want to simply copy and paste their hard work on my blog so I thought I'd just share some photos - so here goes!










It's not perfect but I love it!

  1. I adore the combination of the fabric and leather! The clutch looks great. I've wanted to try bags for some time but haven't been brave enough... was it very easy?

    1. Thanks! Bag making is pretty easy actually and this little clutch was a dream to sew up. I think it came together in about an hour or so.
      The hardest part was because I was sewing with Faux Leather for the first time but my machine just powered through it without a problem.
      You should definitely try making a bag!

I couldn't find it in any regular fabric stores so I bought this from Fabric.com Copy and paste the following and you'll find it. http://www.fabric.com/ProductDetail.aspx?ProductID=d1de579c-db85-41cb-bd64-119e3483348c&CategoryID=baea7aa8-c8ea-477b-976c-7f27b0d091dd&cm_vc=756b1813-cbc1-43b3-84bd-29889bf8fb7b

  7. I love it! It looks like something I could manage (maybe). I'm wondering what type of needle you used...I've recently learned (the hard way) that one needle cannot be used for all jobs.

    1. Good question. From memory I used a regular needle for both the cotton and the faux leather. I remember sewing up some lines on a swatch of the faux leather first just to make sure it was going to look ok and it did!
