Pattern Description:

Clutch Purse sewing pattern for a 6'' metal purse frame.

Stitch this elegant, framed clutch purse. Perfect for using at special events or for evenings out. It could even be used as a really pretty makeup bag. I've used three complimentary fabrics for the outer and lining, making great use of a fat quarter bundle. It's fully interfaced and slightly padded, adding body and strength, and there's an optional interior pocket included to keep small things close at hand. If you've never used a purse frame to make a clutch, you're sure to love the results you can achieve from this easy-to-follow project.

Instructions include both metric and imperial measurements.

Full-size printable pattern pieces are supplied with this sewing pattern.
