Weave Clutch

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • sewing at specific seam allowances
  • trimming seam allowances
  • top-stitching
  • fusing interfacing
  • sewing through different material thicknesses

Pattern Description:

This pattern & tutorial shows you how to make a lovely structured clutch purse with a beautiful woven front & gently curved top detail reminiscent of vintage glamour.

It's closed with a sunken/ hidden zip construction for a clean, professional-looking finish. The clutch is fully lined & has an internal credit card sized pocket for extra practicality.

Measurements throughout are quoted in both metric & inches

I would rate this as an intermediate to advanced level sewing project as there are just over 100 steps in the instructions which need to be followed carefully. However, as with all of my patterns, nothing is assumed and every step is very clearly described and illustrated so that confident, patient beginners are able to follow also. Please read through my Etsy shop feedback for confirmation of this!

This sewing pattern is a digital file, not a paper pattern.

There are 3 pdf files included in the download, but you only need to print 2:

1 instructions file: 16 pages of clear step-by-step instructions with photographs and diagrams for every step.
2 pattern files with accurate, computer drawn patterns. 1 file is sized for printing on a4 (210 x 297 mm) paper, the other for printing on us letter (8.5" x 11") size. You only need to download & print one. The pattern can be printed on your home printer at 100% scale, taped together & cut.

If you wish add an interesting zip pull (such as the tassel pictured), I have posted some free tutorials on my blog

This design would suit medium to heavyweight satins such as duchess, shantung, brocades, jacquards or cottons and canvas...or lighter weight fabrics with the addition of some fusible interfacing to add body. Not so suitable for fabrics which crease heavily, such as pure linens.

Feel free to message me with any questions!!
