The Quarter Note Clutch
The Quarter Note Clutch
The Quarter Note Clutch

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • sew a curve
  • sew tight spaces on a free arm sewing machine
  • sew beautiful topstitching
  • use fusible interfacing

Pattern Description:

The Quarter Note Clutch is a surprisingly fast little bag to make up, with a very classy reward. The large flip lock lends some serious style! (Can be made up with your choice of lock, small turn lock or even a button. The large purse locks are available on my website and include pattern.)

This pattern would be perfect for bridal clutches, evening bags or a quick to make gift! Use 2 fat quarters of quilting cotton or try it with heavy satin, jacquard, linen, or your choice of fabric. Includes instructions for one internal slip pocket, perfect for your phone. NOTE: A sewing machine with a free arm is recommended for this project.

The patterns pieces are full size, and include seam allowances. Pattern instructions are provided in both imperial and metric measurements.

Remember print from ADOBE READER only (not Preview) and to set your scaling to NONE when you print or your pattern pieces will be too small!!!
