If after making a few clutches you want to go into business, I fully support my handbag makers. Many started with just this very same tutorial. See who makes clutches using my fine frames:

How my tutorial benefits you:

1. Two ways to make a clutch: with a bottom seam AND without a bottom seam.

* The bottom seam gives you the ability to use BOTH non-directional AND directional fabrics ie. no "back side" so you will NOT have a bird that is facing up on one side yet positioned upside down on the other side! Learn how to do it right the first time and it won't matter what fabric you are using
* Learn how to make it without a bottom seam when you want to do quick work, when you have non-directional fabric, or for smaller sizes (coin clutches) that make it difficult to line up the seams.

2. BOTH instructional booklet PDF files are specially formatted in a BOOKLET style:
* Print as many copies as you wish from your own desktop printer in full color.
* Handy BOOKLET style allows you to be able to flip it page-by-page to follow each step as you sew -- easy reference and user-friendly. Designed to take up less space on your sewing surface.
* Contains a photo for each crucial step. These detailed pics and this format is extremely beneficial for all users, especially novices and visual learners (like me!).

3. The MASTER tutorial will allow you to make any of the 7 differently-sized clutches. All 7 templates are included.

4. The second BONUS tutorial will teach you how to make ANY SIZE clutch using ANY SIZE or SHAPE u-channel metal purse frame.

5. Pictures and tips on how to glue and insert into the frame.

Please note that the tutorial is written in English.

What to do while the baby naps?
This was the central question for which I started my business in 2001. I had 3 cute little buggers all within four years! It seemed there was always at least one baby napping!

Knowing the tough market for part-time jobs (it's pretty much a fallacy to find a 9-2pm job), I started ...
