I wanted to mix a vintage style "sunray" pleat detail with an easy-to-use modern, zipped pouch style Clutch. This design also has the option to add a wrist strap that you can pop in or out -converting the clutch into a wristlet as you please. It's closed with a sunken/ hidden zip construction for a clean, professional-looking finish. The clutch is fully lined & has an internal pocket for extra practicality. My step-by-step instructions include loads of clear photos & diagrams. All measurements are quoted in both metric & inches. Take a look at some of the clutches my customers have made on my Facebook page If you wish add an interesting zip pull, I have posted some free tutorials on my blog: This design would suit medium to heavyweight satins incl. shantung, brocades, jacquards...or lighter weight fabrics with the addition of some fusible interfacing to add body. The small amount of exterior fabric required makes this a fantastic project for vintage or reclaimed fabrics!

I have been making and sewing since I can remember & have also worked as an accessory designer & pattern maker for a number of years. I love hand-made but don't believe it should equal messy or amateur looking! I want to help others who feel the same achieve a satisfying, quality finish. My patterns are based on the little tips and tricks I have devised over the years to get professional results using a domestic sewing machine and easily available materials.
