How to Sew a Clutch Purse with a Flap Closure

A classy clutch purse with an optional pretty brooch pin accent and flap closure.  I love the positioning of the flower from the top middle of the bag.  It provides the bag with a beautiful focal point. Finished clutch: 11 3/4″ x 7 1/2″.

Sewing Supplies:

  • 1/2 yard of green floral fabric for clutch body and tab
  • 1/2 yard of coordinating fabric print for lining
  • 1/2 yard of canvas for interlining
  • 1/2 yard of 13-inch-wide ultra heavyweight interfacing
  • 1 1/4 inches of 3/4-inch-wide sew-on hook-and-loop tape
  • fabric marker
  • pressing ham (optional)

    I love this bag. I have made several of these for gifts. I don’t have the antique pin to decorate the closure but I made gathered fringed edged flower pins to attach to the flap.
    One recipient asked what the strap on the back was for–I had to explain it was a handle. I might leave that off in the future and just make a regular clutch.

    I have LOTS of great vintage pins! Thanks for another great pattern to use them on. The fabric shown is gorgeous
