I did it! I finally got around to making that little clutch I’ve had on my list for months now. And guess what? I love it!
Isn’t she just darling? I added a little tab on the side to hook a wristlet strap but haven’t made one yet but I couldn’t wait any longer to share the finish!
I used interfacing for the lining as well as the outer fabric and made a little pocket to keep my cash & cards separate. After a week of testing the pocket is ALMOST perfect, there’s definitely some improvements to be made there.
This size fits my old iPhone 5 plus lip gloss and cards & cash no problem. Unfortunately I just upgraded to the iPhone 6 yesterday and now I need to make the next version a bit bigger. I used a faux leather and really love how sturdy this bag feels in my hands.
The fabric is Fancy Free Bicycles by Riley Blake and I *may* have also picked it up in the pink variation at the sew & quilt expo I went to last weekend.
Have you ever made a clutch like this? It was so fun and easy to whip up. I’ve got a couple tweaks and measurements to adjust on my next one but maybe little bugger will end up as a free tutorial some day.
I really like the detail of the faux leather on the bottom of the clutch. Very dressy looking!
Yes to a tutorial! It is so cute! I love the pocket inside, always a must for me!
Hi Teri Ann

Very cute! Love the fabric and the little interior slip pocket.
I love it – so cute with those bicycles on it. Thank you for linking up with Sew Cute Tuesday.
Its so cute!!! I’m definitely interested in a tutorial. I keep trying different pouch tutorials but I haven’t found one that I love making yet. I always have trouble closing up the sides of the pouch near the zipper…I need more practice!
Lovely pouch; I like the bicycle fabric.
Super cute! I really love that bicycle fabric. A tutorial would be great! Thanks for linking up to TGIFF.
