Skill Level:

small skill level requirement Beginner

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Beginner - Someone who has taken a basic sewing class or learned to sew from a book, is familiar with working a sewing machine, and has completed a few simple projects.

Pattern Description:

Sew a faux envelope clutch with a secret pocket in FIVE sizes using this sewing pattern.

I wanted to make an envelope style clutch, but without having to try to fold the fabric into an envelope shape neatly and then do a lot of hand stitching. This design fakes the folds and makes it very easy to sew. The fake fold on the front conveniently becomes a pocket.

Size 1 makes a nice clutch, Size 2 & 3 are good for eReaders and mini tablets, Size 4 is great for phones, and Size 5 is perfect for a business card/mini wallet.

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • Size 1 - 10.25" x 5.75" (26 x 14.5cm)
  • Size 2 - 8.25" x 5.5" (21 x 14cm)
  • Size 3 - 7.5" x 5" (19 x 13cm)
  • Size 4 - 5.5" x 3.25" (14 x 8.25cm)
  • Size 5 - 4" x 2.75" (10 x 7cm)


  • 1/4 - 1/3 yard exterior fabric
  • 1/4 - 1/3 yard lining fabric
  • 1/4 - 2/3 yard fusible interfacing
  • 1/4 - 1/3 yard fusible fleece
  • 1 or 2 Size 24 Long Prong Snaps (other snaps ok too)
  • Snap Pliers (required)
  • 1/4 machine foot with guide (recommended)

I'm interested in all sorts of arts and crafts, but these days I stick to sewing, with the occasional outburst of embroidery. Someday I'd like to learn to knit and/or crochet, but for now I'm just about being buried alive in fabric! Adding more supplies is probably not a good idea...
