After making the Fringe Bag, I just thought that it would be great to have a smaller option; something to carry my cellphone and keys, without carrying a big bag.
That is why I have made this small clutch pattern. I love it already! It is cute and full of personality.
- 1/4 yard of faux leather
2. 1/4 yard of cotton print for lining
3. 1/4 yard of woven interfacing
INSTRUCTIONS for the Fringe Clutch Pattern
- Start by adding the interfacing to the lining pieces.
2. Then, take one of the lining pieces and the clutch facing.
3. Place the facing and the lining together, right sides facing and sew lengthwise.
3. Topstitch the lining by making a straight line parallel to the seam 1/8 inch away.
Repeat this procedure with the other side of the lining.
ADDING THE POCKET to the Fringe Clutch Pattern:
4. Double fold the sides of the pocket 1/4 inch. Press and sew along.
5. Fold the corner top.
6. Then, fold the top 1/4 inch twice.
7. Sew along and repeat this with the bottom.
8. Pin the pocket to the lining. Sew along the sides and bottom.
9. Place both lining sides together, right sides facing and sew along the sides and bottom.
LEAVE A 4-5” OPENING AT THE BOTTOM OF THE LINING.
10. Trim the excess fabric and cut the corners to make it easier to turn the lining to the right side.
ADDING THE MAIN POCKET
11. place the main pocket on the back of the clutch. Sew along the sides and bottom. Repeat this making a secondary line 1/4 from it.
12. Place front and back clutch pieces together, right sides facing, and sew along the sides and bottom.
Trim the excess fabric and cut the corners.
13. Now, sew the fringe piece to the top of the bag. As shown on the picture, I overlapped the pieces and sew 1/8 straight lines on the clutch side.
14. Then, place the lining and main clutch parts together, right sides facing. (tuck the fringe piece as well!!!)
Sew along the top of the bag.
THE FRINGE WAS ADDED BY OVERLAPPING 1/4 INCH OF THE TOP LINE, SO YOU WILL NEED TO SEW ALONG THAT AREA USING THE SAME MEASUREMENT (1/4 INCH)
15. Turn the back to the right side by using the 4-5” lining opening.
16. After that, start cutting the fringe 1/8 to 2/8 inch apart.
17. Now you can topstitch the clutch 5/8 inch from the seam.
18. Gather the materials. You will need:
Spare pair of scissors
The turning lock part will e at the bottom of the clutch.
- Mark where the clutch turn lock will be (follow the pattern marks for this!)
- Make two small cuts on the sides of the line (not the whole line)
- Insert the turn lock.
- Close it (remember that you will have the lining opened at the bottom to do this part)
ADDING THE FACE PLATE to the Fringe Clutch Pattern :
Now that the turn lock is in place, you will need to add the face plate and the back plate to the top part of the bag
- Take the face plate and mark where it should go on the bag.
- Make sure that it is an appropriate distance, so the bag can be closed nicely.
- Cut the fabric using the face plate as template for it.
- place the face plate on the front of the bag
19. Place the back plate on the back of the clutch and close.
20. Fold the straps inside as shown in the picture. Sew along the edges.
21. Finally, add the straps to the outside corners of the bag and sew along. Follow the marks from the pattern.
And that’s it!
Here is the pattern to download. Please notice that the pattern does not include the straps.
Wow, you did a great job with the instructions, I just couldn’t find a pattern to print off. Would you be so kind as to email me the pattern so I can print it off and try? Thank you so much, my email is email@example.com

I have seen this before and could not find the pattern with it. I emailed the owner but never heard from her.
I would like to make this for my grand daughter. Is the pattern available?
Sorry for the delay. The PDF pattern of the clutch has been added to the post.
