Friday 4th May: 10-1.30
The simple foldover clutch bag is such a treat to sew. You can customise this so many ways with chic and elegant, or fun and funky fabric combinations. In my sample I have paired a traditional british grey wool, with a perforated mustard faux leather. If you wish, you can add small ‘D’ ring side tabs for attaching a chain or strap. Chains are not supplied, but I can teach you to make a simple strap – ‘D’ rings and trigger clasps will be provided if you need them.
I will also provide a 28cm YKK metal zip – these are available in a variety of colours; please check to see what is available, or supply your own if you have specific requirements.
Interfacing and Thermolam interling (to give a lightly padded structure) are included within the class fee. You will need to bring a 25cm length of each outer fabric, or a 40cm length of one outer fabric if you don’t like the contrast blocking. You will also need to bring a 40cm length of lining fabric.
This foldover clutch is a lovely size to take out for an evening, but unfolded it is also the perfect size to safely stowe a tablet – the felt interlining gives great protection.
