The soft clutch bag pattern is an easily adaptable pattern to make the clutch of your dreams. This is the perfect accessory for cocktail parties, a dinner or a gift for Christmas. We owe this handy design concept to the House of Hermes when they first launched the Verrou Clutch, a black leather bag with a peculiar closer --a silver bolt-- which I think it is a super way to close a bag. On this clutch, I am using upholstery fabric, but canvas is a great alternative. It is 11" wide and 7" tall with one small pocket inside. I have added just one small pocket, to simplify the job but I will put a link or two to other tutorials for you to go to town with it if you want to add more pockets and embellishments. The point of this pattern since it is so simple is to showcase an amazing fabric, an embroidery design, a patchwork with beads, sequins, lace and the sky is the limit. I really hope you take on the challenge to make something out of the ordinary.
