The clutches keep their shape very well because they are lined with wool felt, which makes them sturdy but soft. The fabric is fused to wool felt which saves a lot of time and work because the felt lining and fabric are sewn together at the same time. Wool felt is available almost anywhere they sell fabric. Felt does not have to be 100% wool. It can be a blend. Edges of clutches may fray slightly but it adds to the charm of the design.
Clutch has a snap or Velcro closure. Button is an embellishment.
The front and back of the clutch can be made in the same color or two different colors.
Clutches are very easy to make - even for beginners! We're sure you'll want to make lots of them. You can use cotton, wool, denim, linen, etc. for the outside of the clutches. The sample clutches have ivory wool felt on the inside, and linen and lightweight cotton fabric on the outside.
