This PDF sewing pattern & tutorial demonstrates how to sew a sophisticated and structured clutch purse with a clever woven front. A unique design offering dimension and an eye-catching focal point on a clutch handbag.  A recessed zipper closure using hidden zipper construction for a sharp, professional-looking finish is your goal.

With just over 100 steps within the instructions, the designer cautions that all steps need to be followed carefully. Nothing is assumed and every step is very clearly articulated and illustrated so that confident-yet-patient advanced-beginner sewers are able to use this sewing pattern to make gorgeous fabric clutch bags.

How to Sew an Invisible Zipper – from Connecting Threads

“Join Sue as she demonstrates how to properly sew an invisible zipper.  An invisible zipper is a zipper that is installed in the seam of two pieces of fabric in such a way that the zipper is recessed in the seam and “invisible”, as the name suggests. It is predominantly used for garments, especially skirts and dresses, but it can also be found in bags and home décor items. The zipper type used is a special “invisible zipper”, and they’re available in sewing supply stores right next to the all-purpose zippers.”
